About

Hi there,

I'm Jeremy and I'm hoping you can support me with my project.

Who doesn't love a map?! We see a familiar shape of a country and our brains immediately presume certain placenames will be in certain places. A map provides, to some degree, a bit of stability in the world. We are lulled in to a sense of comforting security when we see the old and familiar in the correct geographical location.

However,.... what if the eye sees the unexpected? What if the conditioning that maps give us, fails?

Where is London? Why does it say "Palma" on the Isle of Wight? Horror! And why are the familiar colours of Spain plastered all over Britain?

Here is my intriguing mix, that is... "Spangland".

Your friends and guests will marvel in astonishment at the map hanging pride of place in your home. Maybe they love Spain, too?

The British have had an enduring love affair with all things Spanish for a while now and this map celebrates the familiarity of Spain for many a Brit.

Your British friends may well ask themselves: where do I live in Spangland?

Your Spanish amigos: where in Britain is my town?

Enjoy a cream tea in Cádiz, buy your mustard in Elche or toss a caber in Logroño. Everything is mixed up!

¡ Olé !

A stick of Roquetas Rock, or a shopping visit to the metropolis that is Vélez Blanco!

The map is yet to be finalised and the images shown are from the first draft version. A few tweaks need to be made and maybe some places swapped for others, but in principle the map will look as shown above. Now, I just need your help to get the map printed.

Your rewards

***The main reward is obviously a copy of the finished map. This will be printed using my tried and tested printing house on high quality matte 250gsm art paper. The size of the print will be 70 x 50 cm, so it will easily fit in standard-sized frames

***As an extended reward for a pledge of £60 or more, I will send you a copy of the finished map, PLUS a copy of my popular "Spanish stereotypes" map. This shows the outline of Spain made up of all things "typically Spanish" - from siesta to café con leche to sunburnt tourists. The map is also 70 x 50 cm. A perfect compliment to the Spangland map!

***For a much-appreciated pledge of £5 or more, I will send you one of my A6 greetings cards (plus matching envelope). The card is a zoom in on my stereotypical UK map - ie. made up of all things "typically British"! Here's what it looks like...

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT

Risks and challenges

With regards to risks and challenges, there hopefully shouldn't be any! I'm confident of the logistics of getting the maps sent out on time and my trusted printer is standing ready in the wings.

My previous project on kickstarter ("a typical map of Europe") was well-received and everything went really well (thanks again to all my backers!). So fingers crossed for this project as well!! Thanks a lot.
