Tracey Emin has done a sweet design for this summer’s edition of the pocket London tube map. The central line and a fragment of the northern line have metamorphosed into branches of a tree, with a bird perched among the leaves. Meanwhile, the entire network is reduced solely to Emin’s personal use of it, so only five stations are marked – Shoreditch High Street, her local station, as well as Liverpool Street, Oxford Circus in the West End, Victoria and London Bridge (handy for Tate Modern). It’s a cheerily subjective version of the tube map, from which you instantly form a picture of Emin’s personal London, which apparently is all art and shops.
