Hand Drawn Maps

I’ve chosen a 9 maps from different times, between 1590 – 1901, taken from the Crace Collection in The British Library.

I was especially interested in the early maps, realising they were all hand drawn and so full of different details and personal touches. I decided to scale and trace what I wanted from each map – leaving myself with a ‘map skeletons’ I could work from.
