Nice Christmas bonus!  Unfortunately, the set sold out quickly but there are the individual sections still available.  Once these sell out, perhaps the map panels can be made into PDFs for a person to print out.

I too would miss paper maps quite a bit and I am disappointed to see that one of the trips I am considering, underground railway, is on the discontinue list.  However I can see the logic of the decision.  Printing and maintaining paper maps must be incredibly time consuming.  Not the physical printing itself but the design, layout,  error checking, and other cartographic tasks are not trivial.  The digital resources are probably far less resource intensive.  I don't know how well the digital maps play with google maps but my plan is to try to try to import into google mymaps and print from there.
