The daughter of a Deal mum has created a novel map of Kent in the style of the tube map. Putting her mathematical skills to work she has created a map of Kent as a pastiche of the famous London Underground map.
Best selling author, Jessie Wilson, 44, a former demographer and market researcher, who runs the facebook group Institute of Mums, originally created the map as a Christmas present for her mum.
“I’ve been giving my mum homemade presents since I was a child – something I probably should have grown out of by now,” mused Jessie, noting that this is her most ambitious project to date.
Last year she gifted her mum a book-folded birdcage, and the year before that it was a collage of her hometown of Deal.
Jessie posted the map on social media, and said she was inundated with requests from family and friends asking to buy copies.
She has since set up a website, kentlines.com, where she is selling the prints for £25.
As well as maps, Jessie has a best selling maths book, Times Fables designed to teach children their tables in a fun and engaging way.
