Cartographic resemblance

Sean Borodale’s Walking To Paradise, a collection of 12 OS-map-sized poems written in the footsteps of Wordsworth and Coleridge’s tours of the Lake District. Wordsworth Trust, 1999

‘Mapping’ incorporates graphic and digital processes related to multiple different kinds of British terrains. The paucity of knowledge of the conceptual and practical range of British cartographic practises takes its toll on many lit-crits of the phenomenon of cartographic poetry. This post originally reviewed cartographic pieces by Allen Fisher, Peter Riley, Colin Simms, Douglas Oliver and others. I’ve removed the paper, but please contact amycutler1985(at) if you would like to see it.

  1. Hello son Peter Jones just mentioned your PhD subject in an e mail and felt that there may be an overlap with what I’m attempting to build as part of my fledgling business. If you look at the website you will see that I’m doing something called Art Walks .. which is about injecting creativity and greater participation into walking, making art activity more accessible, reconnecting folk with nature etc. I’ve done some that link in to an extent with Thomas Hardy.
    As an aside I mentioned an OS anecdote in a humanist funeral service I took this morning – the deceased was an activist who battled for paths in his parish.
    Might be worth having a look at for another ‘alternative’ perspective.

    Regards Geoff Jones
