Song Maps

Two years ago I did a couple of blog posts about Maps on Album Covers. Last year the British band Saint Etienne came out with this album cover for the somewhat unimaginatively named "Words and Music by Saint Etienne"
The band was taken with the Dorothy art studio's Music Map (below) and asked them to make a special edition for their cover.
Band members chose the song titles for the Saint Etienne edition. The map is loosely based on Croydon, where the band is from. Cyprus Avenue is the Croydon Flyover and Ventura Highway is Wellesley Road. The album cover does not show the full map and this detailed image from Dorothy shows an area that is mostly not on the cover. I don't have the CD so I don't know if the rest of the map appears in the album's artwork.
