Signal boost: calling cartographers!

Filed under: signal amp — Tags: — Sam @ 11:53 pm

Saladin Ahmed is looking for an artist who’ll make a beautiful map of his fantasy world to go inside the hardcover of his debut novel. It probably isn’t a formally paying gig, but there’s almost certainly something reciprocal in it. His post about it is here, so if you have any mapping experience please consider it.

I have to declare a strong interest myself, as On the Meaning of Maps will show. More art in books, especially with the risibly bad state of fantastika cover art, is Always Good. Providing a map that could exist in the world, as an artistic object as well as a functional one, is even better.

  1. Interesting juxtaposition: I was lamenting yesterday about my inability to draw convincing floor plans for my fictional Carsingthorpe Lodge. If I come up with a solution, I’d love to include the plans in ‘Searching for Julia’ along with the Peveril family tree and heraldry details that are slowly taking shape.
