It’s been quite a year for the humble tube map. Not only did it celebrate its 80th birthday and get to bask in the glory of the London Underground 150th anniversary, it also had a whole load of loving tributes. There were so many great alternative tube maps designed this year that we thought we’d round them all up in one handy blog post…
