This was the submission by the Mapping London editors into the 10×10 Drawing the City London 2013 art event, which was a charity auction run by Article 25. The graphic shows nine different census results for the area around Shoreditch in east London. A single print was produced on canvas, bound by UCL Geography’s Drawing Office, and presented for the auction at the Granary Building in King’s Cross late last year, where it received four bids and raised £140 for good causes.

You can find more about the work in the blog posts by James andOllie. The following explanatory notes were on a sheet accompanying the artwork:
