Photography & Illustrated Travel Book of the Year at the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2019Maps can transport us, they are filled with wonder, the possibility of real adventure and travels of the mind. This is an atlas of the journeys that writers make, encompassing not only the maps that actually appear in their books, but also the many maps that have inspired them and the sketches that they use in writing. For some, making a map is absolutely central to the craft of shaping and telling their tale. A writer's map might mean also the geographies they describe, the worlds inside books that rise from the page, mapped or unmapped, and the realms that authors inhabit as they write. Philip Pullman recounts a map he drew for an early novel; Robert Macfarlane reflects on his cartophilia, set off by Robert Louis Stevenson and his map of Treasure Island; Joanne Harris tells of her fascination with Norse maps of the universe; Reif Larsen writes about our dependence on GPS and the impulse to map our experience; Daniel Reeve describes drawing maps and charts for The Hobbit trilogy of films; Miraphora Mina recalls creating 'The Marauder's Map' for the Harry Potter films; David Mitchell leads us to the Mappa Mundi by way of Cloud Atlas and his own sketch maps. And there's much more besides. Amidst a cornucopia of images, there are maps of the world as envisaged in medieval times, as well as maps of adventure, sci-fi and fantasy, maps from nursery stories, literary classics, collectible comics - a vast range of genres.… (més)

Thank you to Hue Lewis-Jones, University of Chicago Press, and NetGalley for allowing me the extreme pleasure of access to an advanced reader copy of “The Writer's Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands” for an honest review.

I absolutely had to jump at the chance to request and review this book at the first glance of its title and synopsis. What could be better than a book of all the maps, both given to us, and inspired by, our favorite literary worlds? I was enamored from its first hint of existence, which made the experience transcendent once I received my copy.

The pictures are gorgeous, colored copies, laid out well against the places they've come from (text of novels, and poems, and epics, and on). There are reflections by those still writing now (about their past, present, and current worlds) who were included, as well as pieces from earlier decades and writers who penned our favorite universes, and who gave birth to our dreams and nightmares.

I recommend this to all people who love the magical lands we've traversed in our writing, and long to touch, just for a second, those worlds we've crossed and recrossed. ( )

En karta i en skönlitterär bok innebär vanligen att boken riktar sig till barn, eller att den innehåller fantastiska drag (ett tredje alternativ är att det är en detektivhistoria, men dessa kartor är i regel ganska skissartade). Det är alltså ett tecken att vi är på väg till en plats som knappt finns, eller kanske hellre som finns i särskilt potent form: en plats där underbara ting kommer utspela sig, där djur kan tala, ringar kan göra en osynlig och mattor kan flyga. Kartor är därför ett bra sätt att öka intresset.

I den av Huw Lewis-Jones redigerade The writer's map förklarar författare och konstnärer varför just de älskar kartor som komplement till litteratur; essäerna täcker alla tänkbara världar: Midgård, Narnia, Sjumilaskogen, Mumindalen, Skattkammarön; platser att glädjas åt och återkomma till. Det är ingen dålig samling som medverkar: på omslaget står bland annat Philip Pullman, Lev Grossman och David Mitchell (författaren, inte komikern); andra har medverkat att skapa kartor och annan rekvisita för bland annat Sagan om Ringen och Harry Potter, eller illustrerat klassiker som Robinson Crusoe.

Det är en på alla sätt trevlig bok: texterna är av ett lagom utmanande slag: de barndomsminnen som finns är ljusa, men inte heltigenom. Bildmaterialet är fantastiskt och blandar illustrationer av moderna verk med kartor så gamla att mycket på dem är fiktion. Precis som på en bra karta kan man gå vilse i fantasin, en kort stund eller en hel dag. ( )

The Writer’s Map has to be one of the most interesting concepts for a book that I’ve seen in quite some time. Within its pages, the reader is introduced to the great imaginary literary worlds and the maps that inspired them and the maps that came from their stories and descriptions. The book is divided into several section, with each being written by a current author or illustrator. Details are given as to what fueled their love for writing about faraway places or their experiences that led to their interest in literary maps. The sections hit upon such famous maps and places as Mordor, The Marauders Map, PL Travers London, Treaure Island and many more. I always appreciate a glimpse into the history of books and the authors who write them, so I was fascinated with this unique topic.

I do think a physical book would be the best format for this read, as it would enable the reader a better way to really view all of the details in the photos of the maps provided.

Overall, this was truly a unique look into both the history of maps and imaginary worlds and, also the stories behind our favorite authors.

I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher given in exchange for an honest review. ( )

This is first and foremost a coffee table book to look at and marvel: it’s full of imagined maps, old and new, mostly made to accompany stories ranging from Gulliver's Travels or Robinson Crusoe to Lord of the Rings, Narnia, and Peter Pan. Various writers and illustrators testify to their fascination for maps and how they portray the real reality, or the reality of a story. Because that is a recurring theme: reality and imagination are only separated by a vague dividing line, and in many cases they run together.
Editor Huw Lewis-Jones aptly puts it this way: “maps are invitations. We can read them, read with them, draw and redraw them, use them, share them, add and alter them, enter into them. As representations, they are always partial, always incomplete, and yet they always offer us more than what is held there on paper alone. Maps begin a story. They send us off on new journeys, set our feet moving and our minds racing. Maps inform us and they encourage wonder. Maps give us guidance and direction, and show us the range of a territory, but they can only ever suggest a greater whole. The rest is up to you ”. I think that says it all. ( )
