Artist and cartographer Adam Dant turns his attention to the world of politics, in Britain and beyond.

Join us at Stanfords with Artist and Cartograper Adam Dant talking about his head spinning mission of creating an illustrated Atlas of our common Political terrain.

As 'The Official Artist of The UK's 2015 General Election' Dant is well qualified for this task and his insights and observations gathered whilst on the campaign trail with a host of political hopefuls make for a highly entertaining trove of tales from the frontline here revealed in colourful fashion.

The resulting handsome and captivating volume Adam Dant's Political Maps ( Batsford Books) will guide and delight the viewer through the geography of the broad Political landscape via 47 diverting cartographic works of art, where we can encounter... the messaianic mission of Jeremy Corbyn, London as the playground of Boris Johnson, Europe as a continent of agitating secessionist entities, the perilous passage of 'Brexit', and Dant's masterpiece 'The Government Stable' ; a compendia of 2015 UK general election moments depicted as a warehouse crammed full of hundreds of recognisable bits of anecdote and ephemera.

As an illustrated talk Adam Dant's Political Maps promises to beguile the eye whilst we encounter what is often a fraught subject in a congenial manner ( possibly spilling some beans en route ).
