Human Body as a Tube Map

It might be easier to imagine the workings of our body if it were mapped out like the London Underground map. With "Under Skin" (you can see what's she's done there), Dutch designer & illustrator,
Sam Loman has charted the interchanges in our body to various "lines" on the map.

If you look at the actual size (via Vizworld), you can see the full beauty of her mix of design, science & cartography. There's a nice touch with Sam giving the copyright to Transport for Body.

As Gizmodo said "And no matter what the locals tell you, don't take the pink line to the yellow line. That's nowhere you want to go."

Thanks to MichalD for letting me know about this. It's a lovely find and just when you think you've seen almost everything visualised as a Tube map, something else like this pops up. Harry Beck would be proud!
