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
