If you think maps are a boring relic of a bygone age since the arrival of GPS, you obviously haven’t discovered the work of Herb Lester Associates. Which means you probably need to invest in the company’s latest work, The Raymond Chandler Map Of Los Angeles.
It’s another gem of a design, this time by Paul Rogers, with words by Kim Cooper. As you might have guessed it is a guide to Chandler’s LA, as well as the world of his alter-ego, private detective Philip Marlowe. So a mix of locations from the books, the films and Chandler’s personal life.
All of that on an A2 (folded to A6) map, which is litho-printed in England on 100 per cent recycled paper. If you want one, it’s new on, retailing for just £4 — via Retro To Go
