Greater Shakespeare Railway Map

Cute idea, breaking down all the major Shakespearean characters on various rail lines like "lovers", "warriors", "mothers" and so on.  Bonus credit for the little icons, like having the sign for "Restaurant" over Titus. :)

Update: Some more links on the background history of the map:,,2177000,00.html

The map is part of a branding campaign for the RSC and we'll soon see it on t-shirts, mugs, bags and so on.

Oh, now this is too cool! You can wander all over, seeing relationships. Gertude is an intersection station for strong and difficult women and mothers. Hee!

Hmmm - this seems somewhat derivative of Simon Patterson's "The Great Bear":
