‘I wisely started with a map, and made the story fit’ (J.R.R. Tolkien).
A map is the starting point for all journeys into the unknown, reassuring travellers of the existence of a real and accessible landscape somewhere beyond their immediate vision. Great cartographers of the imagination, like Tolkien, offer their readers entry into invented worlds whose authenticity is confirmed in the contours of a map.
