The Mapping London Christmas List 2013
Here’s some of our favourite maps we’ve reviewed over last 12 months, and where you can buy them:
- Running with Crayons is a fantastic name for an artist’s portfolio, and we loved the beautiful and colourful hand-drawn maps of London we looked at in April. You can buy the maps of East London and South-East London, amongst others, at Tilly’s BigCartel Store.
- Stephen Walter is selling a digital copy of his London hand-drawn maps, on an iPad app, Walterian London. We liked the Hub Map of London and London Subterranea particularly. See more about the app on the iTunes Store.
- In July we reviewed a new reproduction box set of the A-Z 1938 London Street Atlas, which comes in an attractive case and is available through Amazon.
- London Dissected is the fourth in the Curiocity series of quirky, and genuinely pocket sized, maps. Each one has a different theme, this one reimagines London as a human body. The map is packed with gory locations and related trivia. We reviewed it in August and you can get it, and the others in the series so far, at the Curiocity website.
- Rocque’s Map of Georgian London is a modern reproduction of a 1746 map showing London in great detail. The reproduction comes in an attractively boxed set of four maps. We featured it in August and it’s on sale at Amazon.
- David Fathers has created a poster of the Thames as it flows through London. See our review and buy it direct from the illustrator.
- Last month we reviewed Craft Beer and Coffee Maps and you can get them from the Blue Crow Media shop, along with a Cocktail Bar map.
- The Adventure Walks Map – we reviewed this just yesterday. Buy it here on Amazon.
If you are looking for mapping gifts beyond just London, then co-editor James Cheshire has compiled his own list.
