This to-scale map of London is made from 5,000 travelcards that artist, Vicky Steane collected while traversing the capital between 2000-2010.
The Travel Card Map is also geographically accurate. Look closer and you’ll see that Steane has depicted all of London’s green spaces, residential areas, government buildings, sports grounds – even all of the major A-roads make an appearance!
Also, the piece captures a London of years gone by. The travelcards represent a pre-Oyster card era, and the map depicts London prior to the 2012 Olympic Games, which saw significant redevelopment of East London.
This giclée print is from a limited edition of five, signed by the artist.

Your Framing Options at entergallery.com
Box framing is provided with all our online framing, creating a distance between the glass and your artwork, so no risk of ink transfer to the pane. it's the perfect, gallery grade choice for limited edition prints or original artworks.
Shadow float mounting is an option at our website, to give the appearance of an artwork floating within the frame. The mount – an archival foam core – creates depth too, by casting a shadow beneath the artwork. We highly recommend using a float mount when framing artwork with deckled (hand-torn) edges.
As always, all our materials are sustainable and archival to keep your artwork in mint condition and perfectly presented. Simply choose from our white or black float framing options, before adding to basket.
Glazing our UK framing orders are shipped with glass. For our customers outside the UK we frame with gallery grade cast acrylic offering superb clarity and protection.
