The iconic London Tube Map has been transformed. 

In a bid to capture the imagination of London's locals and tourists, and to showcase the city's rich literary history, In The Book have been messing around with the map of London's underground trainline, replacing each station with the title of a book that was set in that area.

"As bookworms ourselves we feel that literature has a unique way of painting places like few other things can,” said Tom Matthews, a spokesperson from In The Book. “We’re all familiar with Charles Dickens, Martin Amis and Zadie Smith, but it’s also titles such as Lawless and the Devil of Euston Square and Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows that help colour areas of the city in their own unique way."

It certainly makes for an interesting new way to explore the city. Knightsbridge becomes Neverwhere, and Northern Line will take you from Disobedience to Atonement.
