The Art of the Hand-Drawn Map

Thursday, 16 October 2014 to Thursday, 26 February 2015

Hand-drawn maps are works of art. They are, by definition, unique and rare. They give us not only a direct and tangible link to past cultures and societies but more particularly an immediate connection with the very individuals who made, held, and used them. This exhibition explores the phenomenon of the hand-drawn map in the modern age of print.
