Canal Tube Map 3.1

A few years ago i created a Birmingham canals map in the style of the iconic London tube map. Over the years the map has expanded in scope a bit to cover the West Midlands and Warwickshire, and a bit beyond, and the map style has slowly evolved. Notably the map no longer uses diagonal lines as i think these are harder to read personally. Also i use the typewriter font on it which i basically use everywhere these days (font is representation of the font from a Brother typewriter, i got a real one too!)

So anyway here is Version 3.1 of the map which i have just published, the new version includes some stylistic improvements as well as some refinements how a number of canals are shown. Click here to check it out!
