HERR DR SIMON’S EMPORIUM OF CARTOGRAPHIC DELIGHTS

Jesse Simon, a friend and a neighbour, is not only an expert in all things opera as well as in antic Roman imagery, but he also happens to be a true master of hand-drawn cartography.

As a proud owner of two of his maps – both, obviously, of Kreuzberg: SW61 and SO36 – both with Number 1 (!) and both being framed as we speak, I can only say: whoever said beauty was dead should possibly reconsider:-)

Jesse´s beautifully crafted maps for Kreuzberg 36, Kreuzberg 61, Schöneberg, Mitte and Mitte-Prenzlauerberg are now available through Slow Travel Berlin online shop. Start queuing!

    Lovely lovely map. But where is Kopischstrasse? Symmetry round Chamissoplatz is lost. And so am I if Kopischstrasse has disappeared….

      Well, the symmetry is often absent from maps. As for Kopischstrasse, I can only guess it either did not fit in or got overlooked. Please, do not hold it against the author – he did a stellar job anyway:)

      Sadly I had not spent much time around Chamissoplatz when I drew this map back in January. However these omissions will certainly be rectified in the 2015 edition.
