There is a talk coming up this Tuesday 4th December at the St Brides Foundation, as part of ‘Type Tuesday’, in association with graphic design publication Eye Magazine, (also available in Aldgate Library) discussing this exhibition and other map making wonders.
On the panel will be Artist/Illustrator Adam Dant, along with Caroline Walker, co-curator of the exhibition, as well as being Max Gills great niece.
Adam Dant meticulously illustrates alternative maps of London sites, among other things, and currently has an exhibition on at Rich Mix, Bethnal Green.
