Hi - thanks for sharing your maps! Are you aware of the BBC prog 'The Beauty of Maps'? It has been broadcast a couple of times now on British T.V. As far as I am aware it is not available outside of the UK, but there are some rips on youtube if you do a search. I am lucky enough to have near HD quality copies on my hard-drive. I've loved maps since an early age, I used to have competitions with my best friend as to who good draw the best map of the British Isles - missing no islands!
Oh, it’s my pleasure! I hadn’t heard of The Beauty of Maps, perhaps some British followers already know of it? If not, I’m publishing this so fellow cartography lovers can look into it (as will I). That’s so cute that you and your best friend had map drawing competitions as kids, and it’s wonderful that your fondness for maps has pervailed through the years!
HI! I really enjoy looking through your tumblr blog. I thought it was creative and Unique to have a whole blog dedication to your collections of maps. I always like looking through map here. Maybe becasue one day I want to travel the world. I have a request, could you post maps of the middle east (Palestine) if you dont already have one.
Thank you so much! Maps definitely encourage wanderlust (as it happens, I detested geography as a child, and it wasn’t until I began traveling the world, that suddenly studying geography and looking at maps was enthralling). Here is the Palestine tag, though there’s only a couple there, I believe there may be some others of areas within Palestine that simply weren’t tagged “Palestine”. That being said, I will keep my eyes peeled for new additions!
Hello hello. I have a peculiar question, I suppose -- what's your view of (do you have a view of?) navigational maps, charts, and the bodies of water you find in cartography? I'm actually developing a project on this question, so I'm completely being selfish about the question at the same time that I would love to hear what you think. Alternatively, if you have favorite provocateur maps featuring water, I would delight to know. Cheers.
Bashful confession: I am blindly in love and possess an affection for maps that is almost purely aesthetic. I am not particularly, or formally, educated in cartographic studies, and so, the filter I look at navigational maps, charts, and bodies of water in them, is no different than the one I use to view the rest of maps and aspects of maps. Apologies I can’t be of more assistance!
