About us

Fiction, reality and the otherworldly co-exist in Herb Lester’s universe.

Since 2010, our illustrated maps have documented the distinctive in the world’s great cities, as well as charting locations associated with literature, rock’n’roll, the occult and wider pop culture. Increasingly untethered to the real world, our range of notepads from fictional hotels make ideal souvenirs from places no one can visit.

Our products are litho-printed in England on sustainably sourced paper. This is a slower and more costly process than digital printing, but we feel the difference in quality makes it worthwhile.
