Tender Maps Synopsis

'A compelling way of looking at the world' The TLS WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN WE TALK ABOUT ATMOSPHERE? Some travellers are driven by the need to scale a natural wonder, to see a city's sights or a place of history. Others, like Alice Maddicott, travel in search of a particular scene, feeling or atmosphere, often inspired by music, literature and art. Taking us deep into our emotional and creative responses to place, this extraordinary book explores the author's own relentless travelling. From the heat of Sicily to the mountains of Japan, this is a uniquely lyrical approach to psycho-geography. As Maddicott explores this relationship with landscape that is the very essence of human creativity, she transports readers to seventeenth-century salons of Paris and the crumbling balconies of modern Tbilisi, in the company of writers and artists such as Italo Calvino, LM Montgomery, PJ Harvey and Ana Mendieta. Tender Maps is a beautifully evocative book of travel, culture and imagination. 'Rich and beguiling' Travis Elborough, author of Atlas of Vanishing Places
