Enjoy England, the department tasked with promoting England as a tourist destination, has created a site called StorybookEngland that plots the locations of children’s books and stories on a map of England. When a story or book on the lsit is clicked on, the locations upon which the story is based (however loosely) appear on the map. Clicking on a location leads to a more detailed more where a number of further links lead to details about the story. There hotlinks direct users to tourist pages for the actual physical locations. Enough to make one think that England’s major export are good children’s stories. A paper copy of the map can also be ordered (but the link to the pdf version currently is unavailable).

By way of Cartotalk.
