London Lines: Mapping the Metropolis

decoration10 Feb. 2017

A London maps salon hosted by author and broadcaster Travis Elborough

A rich and varied journey around the streets, tracks and layout of London in words, art, design and music. Hear the story of Phyllis Pearsall – who walked the city streets 80 years ago to compile her A- Z – from Gwyneth Herbert and Diane Samuels who created the musical The A-Z of Mrs.P. Celebrate the Tube map with design historian Mark Ovenden, and see the city turned into an extraordinary set of art works in Henry Eliot's book Curiocity. 

The event is followed by Late at The Library: You Are Here, in the main Library building. Tickets for the Late are available here.
