geofftech.co.uk has loved the London Underground for years. Holds the record for visiting every station in the shortest time and has built up a large collection of alternative tube maps on his website.

Now Transport For London have set the legals on him, threatening punitive action if he doesn’t remove the “copyright violations”. Geoff can’t afford legal fees so has had to comply for the time being – a shame as each of the maps is either very funny or very useful.

If I was a TFL passenger I’d be really pissed off at them for wasting my (ever increasing) fares on this sort of crap. The whole absurd episode has echoes of Harry Beck’s original, revolutionary Tube map, designed in 1931 and rejected as too radical until 1933 when the 20th century design icon was finally published.

The “offending” maps can be seen here.
