    Link Map of Fairyland....

    Here's a link to a late 19th Century/early 20th Century map of Fairyland:
    http://www.press.uchicago.edu/books/...figure160.html

    While the style is not normally seen here at the Guild, the map is truly a work of art. You don't begin to comprehend its scale until you zoom in. My hats off to the University of Chicago for putting it online.

    Post Nice

    I always have thought those sorts of maps were a bit hard to read, but as a general idea of the place it's nice.
    either way, it is a beautiful map.
    Not much more I could think to say about it other than that it's lovely and full of pleasant colour.

    Yes, they are hard to read, but since (obviously) for decoration, the fact that it's a lot like a "Where's Waldo?" book works for me just fine. One could look at it over and over again and find renewed wonder!
