In preparation for h.Art I have been making some tall, slim lampshades from reclaimed maps.

Beach-map-shades

These two are from old Ordnance Survey maps of Hastings and Eastbourne which were printed about 40 years ago. 

Beachy-head-map-shade

I remember visiting many of the places as a child (as I grew up in Kent), especially Beachy Head and Camber Sands.

Camber-map-shade 

I love the muted colours of the old OS maps.
