A Map of Brighton from the Latest Discoveries

‘A Map of Brighton from the Latest Discoveries’ maps my home city of Brighton, UK encompassing both local and personal history – psychogeography on a very basic level. I researched heavily the history, architecture and historical maps of Brighton and took into account how the mapmaker (and his motivations) always colours the information curated, edited and presented.
