The cartographer Adam Dant is a Hogarthian chronicler of the people, streets, tribes and politicians of modern Britain – he was official artist of the 2015 election, is collected by the Prince of Wales and cites Breugel and Gustav Doré as inspirations. Among his recent projects he created a map for Gavin Turk’s Metaphysical Cyclist tour of Cambridge that took members of the public around the city’s public artworks on bicycles decorated in quirky homage to the artist André Cadere.

This month, prints of Cambridge-born Dant’s map are for sale in a limited edition of 50 (£450), with all profits going to The House of Fairy Tales, a charity set up by Turk and his wife Deborah Curtis in 2008 to make arts accessible to children of all backgrounds.
