Bonus Weekend Map-Lumiere London

For four nights, January 14-17th, Lumiere London transforms the West End and King's Cross areas into a festival of lights, art and music. They have created a coupe of maps of the installations and events including this wonderful map of King's Cross.
This is a screen grab - for the full map and activities, see the screen programme. The map's dark background creates a nice contrast with the installations and other features. The dark blue rails give off a cool dimly lit effect. The water and vegetation are unrealistically bright but they make the map pop and also much easier to read. The pink dots above are the light installations, the yellow are food and other events.

The citywide map and events can be found on their online brochure. It's much less pretty but useful for navigation. I'm not sure why they didn't do this one in the same night-time style.
