If you think maps are a boring relic of a bygone age since the arrival of GPS, you obviously haven't discovered the work of Herb Lester Associates. Which means you probably need to invest in the company's latest work, The Raymond Chandler Map Of Los Angeles.
We’re big fans of the work of Herb Lester Associates and have featured them a number of times so, naturally, as soon as we saw their pieces on sale for a bargain, we thought it was only fair to share.
We're huge fans of the vintage-style maps produced by Herb Lester Associates, with the Clandestine London map being the latest addition to the range.
We have featured the previous vintage-style maps by Herb Lester Associates and if you liked those, we're pretty sure you'll love the new one, An East London Companion.
According to the folk behind this, a lot of time has been put into this particular project, a guide to East London shops, cafés, bars, pubs, butchers, bakers and even a candlestick maker. There are 99 entries in total, from an area stretching from Old Street to Hackney Wick. Some of those will be unfamiliar even to locals. Boi Gordo, Casa Mexico and Mama Vic’s are apparently all 'real finds', and while Labour And Wait, Present and Pizza East may be better known, they’re certainly deserving of a mention on the map.
It was designed and illustrated in east London, litho printed on recycled paper. £4 gets you one. See over the page for a brief glimpse inside.
