Book Description

22 Sep 2008
Mapping England is the follow-up to the hugely successful Mapping London: Making Sense of the City, with acclaimed author Simon Foxell now turning his attention to the country as a whole - a beautiful cartographic journey through maps from the origins of cartography right up to present day with ancient hand-drawn maps to the latest technology in computer generation/3-D modelling. Through a comprehensive collection of compelling maps, both historic and contemporary, this book reveals how England has scrutinised itself, been regarded by others and how its ever-changing identity has been recorded. Mapping England is a visually stunning hardback anthology, taking a unique stance on exploring England's past and future. The country's spellbinding evolution is documented in this beautiful volume through a series of over 200 maps, from the earliest Greek portrayals to German board game images from the Second World War to contemporary representations of the country in the twenty-first century. Mapping England brings together a diverse and stimulating collection of cartographic documents encompassing historical, diagrammatical, comical, mass-produced or painstakingly inked by a devoted hand. Including insightful and illuminating essays exploring the historical content of the maps and how they have been utilised for social, political and commercial purposes, Mapping England is a lavishly illustrated hardback book which helps make sense of this country, offering the reader a glorious sense of place, time and history. Perfect both for gifts and for all those serious about maps and cartography.

5.0 out of 5 stars London London London 18 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Simon "Soot" Foxell was contemporary of mine at school about 35 years ago. He was a gent then and is probably like that now. I own the book - purchased in B'way Mkt London E8 - but have not looked into it more than superficially. More later, perhaps.
