Sketchbook Project 2

Two views, under different lighting conditions, of the Sketchbook Project book that went into the mail yesterday. Of course it was a bit last-minute - it had to be scanned in before sending off, for possible future copies in a limited edition.

The title page reads:

Eleven London Underground lines 

Bakerloo line, Central line, Circle line, District line, Hammersmith & City line, Jubilee line, Metropolitan line, Northern line, Piccadilly line, Victoria line, Waterloo & City line 

from Epping in the north to Morden in the south 
from Upminster in the east to Amersham in the west 

and at the end, the colophon:
twice 402 km of track 
at an alleged average speed of 33 km/hr 

a timeline of 24.5 hours of travelling 
extended by time spent at stops 

270 stations 
visited and revisited, duly noted

The maps inside the covers (important for non-Londoners, I felt) are different versions - April 2011 and August 2011 (another kind of time-travel - about the same span of time as it took me to finish the project). Looking carefully will show that more stations have step-free access, and that a new connector is under construction.
