The Map of Spitalfields Life

Generously praising the quality of the books we have published, Richard Bucht, bookseller at Hatchards, described Spitalfields Life Books as ‘the last art publisher.’ Consequently, I am delighted to announce our most ambitious publishing project to date which is a mighty monograph undertaken in proud collaboration with Batsford Books (established 1843).

On June 7th, we are publishing MAPS OF LONDON & BEYOND, a spectacular hardback containing all your favourite maps by our Contributing Cartographer, Adam Dant. Large pages allow the reader to study all the astonishing and hilarious details  - from gin-sodden drunks brawling in the gutter to the lofty paragons of enlightenment thought – and each plate is annotated with erudite commentary offering hours of fascination for the curious.

MAPS OF LONDON & BEYOND includes an interview with the artist by The Gentle Author.

Please support this ambitious venture by pre-ordering a copy, which will be signed by Adam Dant with an individual drawing on the flyleaf and sent to you on publication.
