A Literary Atlas

2015 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Art (Adult Nonfiction)

Gorgeously illustrated, Plotted: A Literary Atlas is a beautiful work featuring literary maps of nineteen beloved works of literature, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, The Odyssey, Pride and Prejudice, and more. Each map is a detailed work of a magical fictional landscape, taken from diverse periods in history and each infused with DeGraff’s unique perspective on the world. A pithy introduction precedes every section, giving context and background for the world that follows. Little details bring the maps to life, and each page offers up more and more secrets on each re-viewing. The style of the maps also varies widely to match the illustrator’s interpretation of the works, providing a different and riveting way of viewing the given stories.

The maps in Plotted bring each story to life in a way that only visual representation—put together by a rich imagination—could, and will, inspire you to return to these literary classics to rediscover their gorgeous, multidimensional worlds. A must-have addition for any book-lover’s library.
