Cartography Love: An Illustrated Map of London's Street Vendors

June 13, 2012

The latest issue of Boat magazine is devoted to the city of London, exploring everything related to the metropolis that's about to be in the spotlight when the Olympics Games start. One of the little features of this edition is a lovely illustrated map of all the street vendors of the city, from A to Z.

Kate Hyde is the designer behind this beautiful map, which falls in order within her sober, typographic based style. The illustrations created for the occasion are constructed out of thin and simple lines in a sort of naive style combined with experimental-like typographic work; almost like the doodles you could find in an artist's sketchbook. It's a map that favors the venues over the cartography, making the spots stand out from their locations.

The places listed on the map go from A to Z, covering all the best and hidden hot spots of the city as well as the markets from all around town. The layout of the back also relies on this sober-yet-fun look, adding depth with the use of little details that make things pop out.
