The wit and creativity that goes into renaming all the stations on the London Underground map should never be underestimated.
But here's something you won't have seen before, a renamed tube map to beat all other renamed tube maps.
It's the renamed tube map where all of the stations are named after renamed tube maps. The Tube Map tube map.
All the favourites are here. The anagram tube map takes the place of Cosset Frock, or Cockfosters as it's more usually known. Three stops down the line, at Argos Grove, is the definitive sponsored tube map. Epping is replaced by the mashed-up map that started it all, Simon Patterson's The Great Bear. And Buckhurst Hill on the Central line commemorates the very latest addition to the genre, TfL's Olympic Athletes tube map.
Who could forget the marvellous South London tube map, inverted to give the bottom half of the capital due prominence. The map of famous musicians, where every line represents a different genre of music, that's here too. Then there's the Kitten-tastic tube map, possibly the cutest mashed-up tube map ever devised. All these plus hundreds more graphical masterpieces, each linked via a classic reimagining of Harry Beck's iconic original.
But the Tube Map tube map has one additional feature which doesn't work on any other renamed tube map. All of the station names are hyperlinked! Click on each station name and you'll be instantly whisked through to the mashed-up tube map it's been named after. Try it now by clicking on the enlarged extract below...
See how easy it is to enjoy your favourites, now that they've all been brought together on the same map. No longer need you keep all these mashed-up tube maps individually bookmarked, because now they're all collectively indexed in this beautiful new design. Simply click and enjoy.
Not only is the Tube Map tube map available online, it's also being made available in a variety of other formats. A Tube Map tube map app for your smartphone, which auto-locates as you travel around the capital. A Tube Map tube map t-shirt to wear proudly in the street or on the beach. A Tube Map tube map Oyster card holder for every day use out and about. A Tube Map tube map tea towel for hanging up in the kitchen. There's even a Tube Map tube map mug for your daily teatime delight.
Any renamed tube map is truly a work of originality and genius. But the hyperlinked Tube Map tube map elevates London's finest art form to an unsurpassable new level. Harry Beck would surely have been proud.
