Description

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, hand lettering 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 you to build on the knowledge you have just gained. The book is completed by six stand-alone projects.
