Having finally finished all the necessary research, Jane Austen begins to assemble an invaluable guide to the city of Bath (UK)
Preliminary research and a more finished map with relevant notes. One hopes Mrs Bennet and co will follow her good advice.
Last weekend I had the good fortune to be in Watch Hill, Rhode Island as the Artist in Residence at the fabulous Ocean House Hotel. A gorgeous, glamorous setting, the most beautiful beach imaginable and some amazing weather. What could be more inspirational? But first a map of the area to set the scene.
Over the Summer I was lucky enough to take a workshop with the delightful Connie Brown, an amazing mapmaker, at www.redstonestudios.com. Inspired by Connie and by the very different but equally charming site, www.theydrawandtravel.com, I decided it was time to do a personal map making project with my class. So here is the Best of Greenwich, covering Greenwich proper in map 1 and Cos Cob, Riverside and Old Greenwich in map 2. Suggestions for highlights to be added to these maps are always welcome.
