1st Printing. Signed. 126 pages. Published in 2015. Collection of original maps, inspired by literary classics. One of the most beautiful literary-cum-art books of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. Removable "Autographed Copy" round sticker pasted in front. Presents Andrew DeGraff's "Plotted". Interpretations of literary masterpieces as dazzling maps. "Offers readers a new way of looking at their favorite fictional worlds. Stunningly detailed artwork takes readers deep into the landscapes from 'The Odyssey', 'Hamlet', 'Pride And Prejudice', 'Invisible Man', 'A Wrinkle In Time', 'Watership Down', 'A Christmas Carol', and more. Provides a unique, new way of appreciating the lands of the human imagination" (Publisher's blurb). "Paired with essays by Daniel Harmon, these maps illuminate classic works of literature in fun and appealing new ways. Many of the stories depicted are from classic works of children's literature (such as 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' and 'A Wrinkle In Time'), and all are plotted intricately with vibrant colors. DeGraff also includes sophisticated renderings from the works of Shakespeare, Kafka, Borges, Homer, Austen, and Verne. Some representations are maps in the common sense: DeGraff tracing the movements of Odysseus around the Mediterranean, Scrooge around London, Hamlet through the rooms of Elsinore Castle. Some feature diagrams: The depiction of the Pequod from 'Moby Dick'. Others are more abstract: DeGraff plots the romantic courses of the characters of 'Pride And Prejudice' in an intertwined rollercoaster-like structure. Harmon's ruminations on these works add an additional dimension to the maps. A rewarding excursion across the literary landscape that will be cherished by map enthusiasts as well as bibliophiles" (Publishers Weekly). An absolute "must-have" title for Andrew DeGraff, literature, and art book collectors. This Autographed Copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the artist's specially-designed bookplate by Andrew DeGraff. The latter is neatly pasted on the half-title page. DeGraff did not make a single public appearance to launch the book. Instead, he (through his publisher) issued a very limited number of copies with signed bookplates to satisfy public demand. This title will become a contemporary classic. This is the only such copy with signed bookplate of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant artist/illustrators of our time. A fine copy. ISBN 1936976862. Bookseller Inventory # 20182
