Second Edition

It was the best of sunny Highgreen that saw the launch of the second edition of the publication last Sunday. Aside from the story of the invention of contour lines – and lots of images – there’s a short piece by Sara Maitland and a longer one from Chris Fleet of the National Map Library giving an overview of how the story of contours sits within a history of cartography. It’s a good read and if you don’t have a copy already and would like one, please message or email me.

Great also was to be sent images of the models from Tim Bird. Sadly they’re boxed up again now and unlikely to see daylight till the British Cartographic Society Conference this Autumn (unless anyone knows of a venue that would be interested in hosting them?)
