Hogwarts: JKR's Map
"This is Jo Rowling's drawing that she executed in just a few minutes...she
had a very, very exact and precise understanding of her world...she knew
exactly the relationship between all the elements..."
This map is a quick sketch, as Stuart Craig mentions on the PA/DVD. It is amazing how closely it matches the map which I drew for the Lexicon from the references in the books. Clearly Jo had the map in her mind as she wrote, since the descriptions in the books gave me the exact same arrangement of the various elements, with a few notable exceptions. The most important difference is that Jo put Hogsmeade on the opposite side of Hogwarts than I did.
