Thank you for including my work in this. 'The Writer's Map: An Atlas of Imaginary Lands' edited by Huw Lewis-Jones, has lots of other great examples and some really good essays by writers on how the use maps (real or imagined) in their work. I sometimes use the one by David Mitchell with my students.

Thanks again,

Really enjoyed this. Mount London is a great book too! I absolutely love maps in books and it's definitely a contributing factor to why I make poetry maps now. My immediate thought was Winnie the Pooh and Lord of the Rings - both have great maps for poring over - I think there may be one for Peter Pan too. For me, they add an extra, tantalising, imaginative layer to the reading experience in a book..
