For the past 3 months the British Library has opened up the largest collection of maps in the UK as an amazing exhibition “Maps and the 20th Century: Drawing the Line”. So many of our friends have been tweeting about it I knew we had to go.

How amazing that they’ve actually asked us to exhibit there?
Details: 10th February 7:30 – 10pm British Library “Late at the Library: You Are Here!”
It’s an eclectic evening dedicated to maps, atlases and all things curiously cartographic, set to a live soundtrack by special guest DJ Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne. Celebrity compare Mark Cooper-Jones is in charge and the latest in Map tech will be there for hands-on demos from Geovation members.
At the stand: Popular destination maps from all over the UK, our latest Toob neck warmers and your chance to set up maps of anywhere on the planet at the best Map exhibition this year!
We’re also expecting a few surprises!
