Map It

UK music writer Dorian Lynskey has set down the history of Western music by mapping it along the London underground. As he sees it,"Pop intersects with everything else, so that had to be the Circle Line; classical music for the most part occupies its own sphere, which made it perfect for the Docklands Light Railway. There were a couple of false starts but by the end of one afternoon I had assigned genres to almost all the lines and thrashed out most of the major intersections."

A map of misreading in the best sense, no? Read about it here (includes a download .pdf of the map).
