A very dear Austrian friend bought this to my attention today, and I found it so fascinating, I thought you’d like to see it.
This literary map was designed and made by Geoff Sawyers and is for sale via The Literary Gift Company. It is really charming: intricate and beautifully penned. I loved searching for my favourites, and checking that my local notables-John Clare and Fanny Burney- are included.(They are.)
I have to confess it took me an age to find Jane Austen as I had expected her to be in Hampshire, not far from the Isle of Wight. She is in fact to be found near Bath, which I suppose she might have objected to, and the inhabitants of Hampshire will probably be most aggrieved at this placing:
But at least she is “there”. There are other maps available: Wales
Needless to say….one has now been ordered, and I do look forward to others. Perhaps Eire might be next?
