Explore the fictional topography of the most inspiring world cities – including London, New York, Los Angeles, Paris and Tokyo – in this new book from the creators of the award-winning Atlas of Imagined Places.
Did you know that James Bond and George Smiley were practically neighbours, or that girls-about-town Holly Golightly, Annie Hall and Carrie Bradshaw all lived a couple of blocks from one another?
14 of the world’s most stunning city maps show exactly where your favourite characters lived, loved, worked and played. Find out where to enjoy a coffee from Central Perk (Friends), a butterbeer in the Leaky Cauldron (Harry Potter) or a revolutionary tipple in the Defarge Wine Shop (A Tale of Two Cities). Navigate round London’s fictional tube network, from Walford East (EastEnders) to Hobbs End (Quatermass). Or fly between cities on one of a dozen fictional airlines (mapped to their home airports). Characters’ homes, bars, clubs, metro stations and skycrapers that you’ve seen or read about are all plotted in in beautiful vintage-style city maps.
The maps draw from the movies, TV, novels, video games and more, all painstakingly tracked down, mapped, annotated and wittily divulged by the authors. Let them show you how to get to Sesame Street, and thousands of other places besides, in this indispensable guidebook to all those places you always wanted to visit…if only they were real.
