in the lakes

I love this map and I'm not the mappy sort at all.

It's called Tubular Fells and is a whole new way of looking at the Lake District, designed by Peter Burgess. He has rather brilliantly taken his inspiration from Harry Beck, the London Underground map designer and merged it together with the 214 Lake District fells resulting in this astonishing piece of art.

The map is available here and we got our copy after it was featured in the paper a few months ago.  Peter put a little note in with the poster to say he had been inundated with orders and had to go to his printers for another print run - excellent news huh!  We've just had ours framed and are now trying to decide where it should go.
