Today on The Tattooed Book Geek I have for you all something a little different for you all. I was contacted by Lauren from In The Book about the possibility of sharing the literary-inspired map of London that In The Book have created.
With the map In The Book have replaced the names of famous train stations with those of famous works of literature that take place in London. I thought that the concept was really cool and a little different to what I usually host so I eagerly agreed to host the map.
Below you will find a short introduction written by Lauren about In The Book and about the idea behind their literary-inspired map of London too.
We created this tube map as a way of getting people to engage with books. Our literary tube map shows you where your favourite characters made a name for themselves. From the legendary Harry Potter boarding his train to Hogwarts at Kings Cross, to Mary Poppins flying into the Banks’ family home just off the central line.
Not only does the tube map offer a unique insight into the best-loved novels of all time, this map also allows you to see the City in a way you never have before. You can vividly picture Ebenezer Scrooge skulking home after work through the streets near Monument station, and Sherlock storming out of his address at Baker Street to solve another case – closely followed by faithful Watson.
In The Book are a personalised children’s book publisher. We were established in Hertfordshire in 2017 and are deeply passionate about encouraging kids to read, and educating parents about the benefits of reading at a young age. Books provide a world for children to safely explore and learn. We believe that novels are a means to develop confidence, cultural understanding and social skills.

I thought that the map was really cool, a fantastic concept and really interesting. I will admit that the map isn’t perhaps the easiest to see or navigate on my blog. So, if you wanted to see a larger scale version of the map with additional detail then you can find that !!HERE!! and I hope that you decide to give it a look, it is well worth it.
