Book Map explores the exciting world of literary London (pictures)

Dorothy literary London Book Map - picture 4

In times of Google Maps finding any location comes easy. I wish we were able to visit places shown on this fantastic literary map just released by Dorothy, a Manchester-based design studio.

Book Map is a street map made up from the titles of 600 books from the history of English Literature.

Obviously, you’ll find here such legendary places as Mansfield Park, Bleak House, Vanity Fair and Wuthering Heights. There are also 20th and 21st century works included, naming only Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse 5, Norwegian Wood and The Road.

That’s not all – the map includes also fictional areas dedicated to the works of Virginia Woolf, Thomas Hardy, Tolkien, or Harry Potter.

You can buy the Book Map on Dorothy website for £25 (plus handling and shipping). It’s a 80cm by 60cm four-colour litho print on 120gsm uncoated art paper. There is also a signed limited edition for £100.
