Atlases of the Imagination

Client: Batsford Books | 2020-2022 | Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop

Atlas of Imagined Places (2021) and its sequel Atlas of Imagined Cities (2023), both written and researched by Matt Brown and Rhys B. Davies and published by Batsford Books, bring together thousands of fictional locations set in the real world from sources including movies, TV shows, literature, poetry, comics, myths, video games and much more. I was commissioned to create a series of eighteen detailed, period style maps for each title that plot the locations of all the places accompanied by colourful illustrations of various characters and scenes.

🏆 The Atlas of Imagined Places was the winner of the Illustrated Travel Book of Year prize at the 2022 Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards, and was Highly Commended at the 2022 British Cartographic Society Awards.
