Herb Lester Maps

22nd May 2012

Just in, a couple of new maps from Herb Lester Associates:

Writing London:
This whistle-stop tour of literary London includes sites as varied as the block of flats where George Orwell and H.G. Wells fell out over curry and plum cake, Julian Barnes at the National Gallery, J.G. Ballard in Docklands, Alan Bennett’s harsh but accurate summary of Camden Town’s distinctive aroma, and a brief attempt to maintain the pace of James Boswell’s enthusiastic womanising.

The map is designed and illustrated by Thibaud Herem It is A3 (297x420mm) folded to A6 (105x148mm), and litho printed in England on recycled paper.

Paris For Pleasure Seekers:

We have returned from the city of light with another guide to its numerous delights and distractions. The map takes in lingerie, ballet pumps and macaroons; there are belle epoque restaurants, opulent cinemas and beatnik bookshops. In other words, Paris For Pleasure-Seekers contains sensual delights for tastes high and low.
This A3 map folds to our usual, very handy A6 format, and has been designed and illustrated in exquisite shades of absinthe green and coral pink by Kelli Anderson.
