Up cycling out of date London Underground pocket maps
The news from the underground is that we are losing a line, and gaining a few to simplify it?! The orange overground is out and turns in to Lioness, Mildmay, Windrush, Weaver, Suffragette and Liberty with colours we will all soon learn.
I suddenly realised that this would make all their pocket maps (free from every station) outdated and these would soon need to be replaced with a new one. Rather than see these things go to land fill i ran around town collecting them with a view to up cycling them into something you could keep to mark a few new lines.
After a week of frantic collecting, dry mounting and painting i’m happy to show you what i’ve been up to.
The first ones i set about making to see if they would work were Indigo, Astrid and Edgar, three of the iconic rudekids series. I’ve been living on the Central line for a decade and have a deep love of the colour red, the first few were always going Central line centric. Because of this each one priced at a cheaper price of £60 +P&P
