The literary maps


While you'll never find us criticising a good old-fashioned map, you might find us yearning for something more. You know, other than where the nearest hospital is.

So while these literary maps, designed by Geoff Sawers, might not be necessary, they sure are nice to look at.

Dividing the UK, Wales and America into their regional authors, they're useful and aesthetically pleasing.

They're also available to buy from The Literary Gift Company.
