Map of the City Where Every Novel Takes Place

A few days ago we posted this imaginary map of a city where every movie takes place, and luckily there is a literary version too! This map doesn’t include every novel, obviously, but it does include literary locations from “over 600 books from the history of English Literature (and a few favourites from further afield).”

In this bookish city, Animal Farm is a farm off of Wuthering Heights road. The park system includes Lunar Park, Jurassic Park, Mansfield Park, and The Asphalt Jungle. You can go hiking At the Mountains of Madness and Cold Mountain, or take a dip in Dead Lagoon.

Designed by Dorothy, you can purchase the map as a 60cm x 80cm print. There is also a film version you can see here.
