I'm creating a body of work for the Greenstage Gallery in Bishops Frome and I am surrounded by old maps.

Muddle-of-maps

I have tried to source as many local ones as I can to make into lampshades for its Christmas Exhibition.

Bishops-Frome-OS-map

This is an old Bartholomew's map mounted on cloth.

Vale-of-Severn-map 

The colours are soft and muted.

Great-Malvern-Bartholemews-
 
Some of the old OS maps have stronger but just as beautiful colours, with a lovely vintage feel.

Stourport-OS-map

I really like the cover designs of the Seventh Series maps of Great Britain from the fifties.

Ludlow-OS-cover

I may try and make swing tags using an image of the cover for each lampshade.

Hereford-OS-cover

I'm still at the planning stage, so will show you some finished shades in due course.
