Atlas of Imagined Places shortlisted in the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards
Matt Brown’s and Rhys B. Davis’ book Atlas of Imagined Places: From Lilliput to Gotham City has been shortlisted in the prestigious Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards 2022.
In Atlas of Imagined Places, map aficionados Matt Brown and Rhys B. Davies take readers on a tour around the world, offering a kaleidoscope of invented buildings, towns, countries, forests, mountains, rivers and oceans, shipwrecks and sunken cities. Featuring over 5,000 locations mapped across the world, there are fictional landscapes to discover near and far. From Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot and the superhero land of Wakanda, to Lilliput of Gulliver’s Travels and Springfield in The Simpsons. All locations are beautifully brought to life in a collection of maps illustrated by Mike Hall.
The book will be competing against five other titles in the Illustrated Travel Book of the Year category at the Edward Stanford Travel Writing Awards. Read more about the award and view the full shortlist here.
