Graphic designer Ken Kirton has
produced a pocket-sized Field Guide and Urban Actions map to help visitors explore King’s Cross as part of the closing weekend of the London Festival of Architecture (6-8 July).
The King’s Cross Field Guide, edited by David Knight, also includes extended essays on how Urban Actions both past and present have affected and may affect King's Cross. The Actions map includes this weekend's series of activities, events and installations that look at ways of producing positive change in the city.
The map folds to become a jacket for the Field Guide, which comes free with a small pencil that denotes the map’s scale. The font used was specially created by Ken Kirton and references – along with the use of risograph print – the DIY aesthetic of protest banners and posters.
Come to King's Cross this weekend to pick up your free copy and join the exciting program of events, including a sign-making workshop with Ken Kirton.
