Fictional London

Pin It

Jones & Sawers’ Map of Fictional London is an a hand-drawn typographic map of central London, where the street and park names are replaced with the names of the novels, plays and other works that mention them. Over 600 such pieces are named on the map. The cartography is rather attractive, with pastel shades and the literary placenames written on in an attractive font. The work is produced by The Literary Gift Company and is available through them or Present Indicative, in both folded and poster forms.

We love the clear and attractive cartography and the detail in the map – a key on the reverse of the map links each story to the real street name and quotes the specific line in the work that references the street (or park), allowing you to create your own literary tour, taking your own route through the centre of the capital.

Buy a copy of this lovely map here – currently at £5.99 for the folded version, it’s a nice stocking filler for that London literary map geek you know!

Thank you to the Literary Gift Company for sending a review copy.
