Cities, people and maps

Roque is trying very, very hard to pretend that London is orderly; that London actually can be systematized. And then you back to Hogarth and realize, no, actually. Because the thing about London is people, and people just make it into a madhouse.

Richard Cork, comparing Roque's map of London to Hogarth's images of London in the BBC's The Beauty of Maps.

The series has been excellent so far. It is a superb examination of what is included in maps, and more interestingly, what is left out. *[BBC]: British Broadcasting Corporation
