“Charting the Geography of Classic Literature”

I’ve always had a thing for maps and I would be fascinated with this exhibit!

A new exhibit focuses on maps of fictional worlds.

These are just a few of over 60 maps that are currently on display at the exhibition Landmarks: Maps as Literary Illustration, at Harvard’s Houghton Library. The collection includes the work of landmark authors such as J. R. R. Tolkien and the late Ursula K. Le Guin, and spans everything from love stories to fairy tales. The exhibition is open through to April 14, 2018; Atlas Obscura has a selection of these literary maps.
