  40. 40. OS Maps
  41. 41. Maps coax their readers into doing the lion's share of the work. They require an act of code-breaking to distinguish the symbols for railway embankments from gravel pits; club houses from cattle-grids; coppice from saltings. They demand close attention to variations in the landscape and navigational initiative. But, as abundantly generous recompense for such active exertion, the bird's-eye view grants the freedom to eschew efficiency, to choose one's own path, to wander, improvise and play among the hills. The freedom to get lost, and find oneself again. By stimulating and freeing the mind, the paper map is loved by poets, artists, hikers, historians, lovers, dreamers. Rachel Hewitt
