A celebration of maps in fiction
Some of our most cherished reading journeys are accompanied by maps. Whether discovering The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, the Narnia books, Swallows and Amazons, or Watership Down, the maps in the end papers are central to our early experience of literature, and are often delightful works of art. In this celebration of the genre, writer and broadcaster Brian Sibley explores some of the classic maps of fictional landscapes and publisher David Brawn looks at the worlds created by Tolkien and C S Lewis. We are also joined by cartographer and artist Jonathan Roberts, creator of the superb official maps of Westeros and Essos, from George R R Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.
There will be a book signing after the event.
