Map Of Your Village
“I'd like a map of this area" I said "Colour or black and white?" Well I wasn't much bothered, and here is the selection of
MAPS OF YOUR VILLAGE I was given.
First a black and white map, which also contains text about the Prisoner series and Portmeirion. Second up was another, more simple black and white map, and nothing else. It looks on the outside to be the same as it's predecessor, but it's not. Originally this black and white map of your Village came with a ordinance survey map of Portmeiron, the woods, and peninsular. This is the most authentic black and white reproduced map of your village
The first colour Map of Your Village, with text and colour photographs of Portmeirion and
MGM film studios at Borehamwood, but which has the hospital marked on it. Whereas the original Map of Your Village doesn't!
Another black and white map of your village, smaller this time, and with both episode synopsis and complete cast and credits.
At last! The first correctly produced replica of a colour Map of Your Village, okay it's not perfect with leather effect front cover, but not on the back, and the map itself - painted in water colour!!!!! Not only that, but there is a great quantity of text. Text regarding the original colour map of you village, and not only that, the text goes into long a full detailed account on how this map was produced!!! WHY????????????????
And now we come to the most recent of Maps of Your Village, produced by De Agostini as part of their Prisoner part-work. A leather effect full cover, with authentically reproduced colour Map of Your Village. The best ever colour Village map reproduced I feel.
So having all these Maps of Your Village at my disposal, I'm still not clear as to where I am. The village is still just the village. The mountains are just the same on any map, as is the sea, cliffs and caves.
So where am I? Well your guess is as good as mine. But I have a sneaking suspicion that it might very well be the Italianate Village of Portmeirion.
Be seeing you
