Winner :: Commended :: Commended



HarperCollins Publishers
The Times Compact History of the World

The winner of the 2006 Printed Mapping Award is a pair of compact reference books by HarperCollins Publishers which provide historical and geographical information. The Times Compact History of the World includes inventive ways of showing different era's and themes of history without overcomplicating each map, and yet still maintain a high level of information. This is well paired with a Times Compact World Atlas presented in a slip case, which provide an excellent combination as home reference guides.

Sheena Shanks of HarperCollins receives the award, on behalf of her colleague Jethro Lennox who was unable to attend, from BCS President Seppe Cassettari.

Earth's Mighty Power

This commendation is for a pair of maps commissioned by the Readers Digest to show events which occur in 3 dimensions as part of their Earth's Mighty Powers series. Geo-Innovations have produced a map of the path and time bands of Hurricane Katrina and also the spread over time of the South East Asia Tsunami. The judges congratulate them on successfully producing visually stunning maps which relay the geographic and time elements together so that they are no longer static maps.
