We are delighted to announce that our Historic Map of York which was submitted for the British Cartographic Society Awards 2014 has been awarded the Stanfords Award for the best printed map, as well as the BCS Award for the best map in all categories. We are very pleased to have won this prestigious award and would like to pay tribute to Chrissy Bond who produced the map. Chrissy died in March 2014, so this is a fitting tribute to her body of work as a cartographer.

The Historic Map of York

Lovell Johns has a long association with the Historic Towns Trust and have worked together on various atlases since the company was founded in 1965. The Historic Map of York is one of a long line of products that have been created to show the development of a modern city from its ancient origins.

The Historic Map of York

To create the mapping, out of copyright OS mapping was digitised to make a vector base which could be edited.  Various academics produced historic information on the days of buildings, which was displayed in a graphic format on the map, with clear colouring for the different stages of development. The map has been printed, with textual information on the reverse, by Old House books, and is selling well in various outlets in York, where it is of interest to tourists, residents and researchers alike.
