New pocket Tube Map

But is it art? (revisited)

Take the twelve colours of the Tube Lines. Add a date in January to make people wonder about the significance. Break the date up, so that you focus on sections like day and six and een. Pitch it to the guys at TfL as a utopian zeitgeist vision of what might happen on the eve of a revolution in transport. And bingo, you've got a brand new cover for January's pocket Tube Map and a nice little earner.

The Day Before - Tube Map

Sometimes, I really wish that I had enough artistic balls err... sorry talent to do this. But I haven't. So I'll just marvel at Liam Gillick's The Day Before (You know what they'll call it? They'll call it the Tube) as he laughs all the way to the bank.
