My Easter Treat - The New Cotswolds Map-Guide

At last, after many months out of print, "The Cotswolds Map-Guide" is back! 

With an up-dated layout and 5 Scenic Drives (car tours) added to the map and described in the guide - see an example below...

Peter, my sales agent is furiously chasing his tail up the Fosse Way and beyond, to deliver these maps and our guidebooks to our loyal customers. Herewith, some sample pages to delight and encourage you to consider a purchase.

This was the first Map-Guide I produced that has now evolved into a much more sophisticated design, but the concept remains the same; to combine a leisure map with a travel guide. At the time, 25+ years ago, map publishers were only printing on one side of the paper. That seemed ridiculous to me, and an opportunity was born. To produce a double-sided map that pertained to be a map and guide in one. I developed the series with Goldeneye to cover most of UK's major tourist regions. Since the onset of digital and free info the series has been culled and only the better sellers remain in print.

The Cotswolds Map-Guide has always been the best-seller....and from this acorn have developed my other Cotswold publications resulting in "The Cotswold Collection" launched last November. 

I must now up-date the Goldeneye website....
