Old City Map

We collaborated with Simon Tozer, who illustrated the beautiful Old City map that explores the crafts that helped build the central area of Bristol in the early part of the 1900s. The map was printed by Pat Randle at Nomad Letterpress on the brilliant Heidelberg cylinder press with type set and cast on Whittington’s Monotype caster (in Caslon). The maps which are 460x600mm will be available for £5 (and will be in our shop in the next week or two).  The fold is based on a very nice vintage map of Carolina that I’ve had for years and always wanted to find a use for its neat folding pattern.
