This map is the Paul Garbutt design that superseded that of Harold Hutchison . In 1962, Garbutt responded to criticism of a current unpopular and angular version of the Underground map by creating a new design, restoring the map's elegant curves in a style more in keeping with Harry Beck's original. He undertook this project on his own initiative, to relieve intellectual boredom at home during two days in the Christmas break.
