Mapping a Literary City

book map

Using turn of the century maps of London as a jumping off point the designers of Dorothy devised this literary street map.

The map features “over 600 books from the history of English Literature (and a few favourites from further afield)”

It also features a handy A-Z key  listing all the books featured along with the author’s name and the date first published.

They are offering 2 versions of the map: A limited edition 4 colour litho print on 120gsm Keaykolour China White uncoated paper or an open trade edition.
