Untamed London

Untamed London is a new map, created in order to show the parks and open spaces where nature still reigns supreme. This map contains details of 82 wild spaces. It is amazing to see how in the middle of one of the world's largest cities there are still ponds, woods, marshes and hilly peaks, emphasising the 'triumph' of nature over urban life. 

The chart also comes with 3 short essays about London's varied ecosystems, including a piece by the author of Spitalfields Life. The maps are created by Herb Lester, which is really a design team of two.
