Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow


You know the drill now, we love the Herb Lester maps, both the design and the fine array of places they flag up. This Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow looks like another winner for the company.

As ever, it's a map of the usual and the unusual – so expect record shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and inevitably a fish and chip shop – albeit one with an opera-singing proprietor. There are also glorious parks, beautiful architecture and great food and drink – like an unchanged 1960s pub, the Glasgow Architectural Salvage Yard, an art deco restaurant and oyster bar (Rogano) and to top things off, an excellent record shop (Monorail).

The map is designed and illustrated by Brent Couchman, is A3-sized(297 x 420mm) and litho printed in England on recycled paper. A bargain at just £3. Another shot over the page.

Fairbridge Glasgow classic cafes calendar

Fairbridge cafe calendar

Walk down the high street in a British town and it's easy to get depressed about all the chain stores. Celebrate some unique eateries with this Glasgow classic cafes calendar. It contains lovely black and white photographs taken by young people working with the Fairbridge charity in the city. 

People who know Glasgow will be able to recognise many of the places such as Boni's cafeteria or Tomasso's but it's got enough Formica tables, classic condiments and great retro signs to satisfy any connoisseur of the humble caff. 

You can see more of the photographs they took for the project on flickr or get the calendar for £9.99
