New Illustrated Map Specialist – Martin Sanders

June 14, 2013 Martin Sanders describes himself as an illustrator on a quest to put the art back into mapping. “Maps can be portrayed as dull and uninspiring, my aim for my maps is to bring the page alive, rather than let them sit in the corner like an unwelcome aunt (or any non-specific relative) at a party.” He expertly maps exploration, empires, war and navigation, editorial, advertising, New York, Tokyo, Babylon and Byzantium. Specialising in maps for all age groups, his work appears Atlases, Encyclopedias, magazines and an extensive range of reference and educational books worldwide. As the main map artist for BBC History Magazine and 25 years experience, if you need a map illustrated to perfection he is your man!
