Christian and friends,
Not so much an artist – as I have seen ‘artistic’ maps of Cornwall – and they are rubbish. What we really need is a cartographer, and an authentic source of professionally researched Cornish language place-names. I am confident we have this in Craig.
I am pretty sure we all agree – but how do we bell the cat ?

I think that is an excellent idea Herbie, a folded map and a poster size one would be great... All we need is an artist. :)

Excited to have received my copy of Craig’s ‘A Concise Dictionary of Cornish Place-Names’. Looks very comprehensive and well researched, and looking forward to reading it and then having it by for reference.
Following on from the maps’ emails, any thought of producing a Cornish Place-Name Map based on the contents of this book? It could be a great additional asset, and may even be an attractive tourist souvenir if pitched right. I could imagine picking one up at one of those many whirly book/card stands in the shops of Cornwall, especially it had the air of authenticity the book has.
