Amateur cartographer Dan Bell, 25, began his hobby of reimagining British national parks after recreating the Yorkshire Dales in the style of J. R. R. Tolkien.
Tolkien’s maps are recognisable for the font and sketch style of art which Dan has recreated perfectly.
“I like to think the maps allow people to imagine where they live in a Tolkien style.” he told the BBC.
He adds that the maps are “not drawn with accuracy in mind”, and are more an artist’s impression of each area.
He has currently drawn nine out of fifteen parks, including the Lake District, Dartmoor National Park, and the Brecon Beacons. Find his work, and to order your own, at his website.
