Hey bookworms! Recently, a publisher reached out to us to show us some of the cool stuff they were doing over at their company. They mainly work with Children’s Literature and try to find ways to make everyday life just a little bit more literary!
This tube map was created as a way to get people talking about books. The map replaces London Underground’s stations with remarkable pieces of literature set there. Literature has an incredible ability to color your surroundings like nothing else, and with this map, you can vividly picture Baker Street as Sherlock’s home, and Scrooge skulking home from work in the City. This alternative tube map also offers lesser-known titles such as The Wimbledon Poisoner some deserved exposure, while highlighting London’s diverse literary history.

We believe that putting children into the book is a fantastic way to engage them. We understand that books not only provide a world where one can lose themselves but are also a means to develop social skills, cultural understanding and confidence.

If you know of an independent publisher (or big name publisher) that deserves to get a shoutout, let us know in the comments below and we will see what we can do!
I had my friend Elizabeth join me to do the first sentence challenge and had so much fun making this video! We tend to get goofy around each other so prepare for shenanigans!
Interesting map, excellent idea!
I thought so too!
