Hand-Drawn Maps : A Guide for Creatives by Helen Cann

£16.95Price

Hand Drawn Maps is a fun `how to' book about hand drawn cartography. It is introduced by a brief history of maps and map making, followed by five sections covering everything you need to know to make your own maps. Section 1 covers the practicalities, so by the end of it you are equipped to create your own map using compasses, neatlines, cartouche, handlettering, and your own symbols.

Section 2 looks at different types of map, from picture and word maps to architectural blueprints and video game maps. Section 3 uses a wide range of examples to show the reader how to create maps of places, from early strip maps used to describe the journeys taken by 18th-century stagecoaches to dungeon and treasure maps. Section 4 covers maps of ideas.

There are exercises throughout to enable the reader to build on the knowledge they have just gained. The book is completed by six stand-alone projects.
