Dorothy's Film Map

Regular readers of CR might recall the Song Map we featured on the Hi-Res page our January 2012 issue and which was later adapted to create the sleeve for St Etienne's recent album. Now its creator, Dorothy, has created a Film Map, on which every street and feature is from a film title...

Loosely based on a vintage Los Angeles street map, Film Map features over 900 film titles including, as you can see, Jurassic Park, Lake Placid, Pan's Labyrinth, The Temple of Doom and The Two Towers. And that's just in one tiny section of the map.

"It has its own Hollywood Boulevard and includes districts dedicated to Hitchcock and cult British horror," says Dorothy's Ali Johnson. "Like most cities, it even has its own red light district," she adds. An A-Z key along the base of the map lists all the films featured along with director names and release dates.

Open edition prints of the Film Map cost £25 plus postage and packaging. A limited edition signed and stamped print is also available for £100 plus p+p. Both are available (as is Dorothy's Song Map) from wearedorothy.com/shop.

I love it! A fantastic follow up to the song map. My favourite yet. I'm looking forward to see what comes next from Dorothy.
