About A-Z MapsThe trusted source for street maps and atlases, Visitors’ Guides, Road Atlases, the Adventure Map series for walkers and more, since 1936 - now published by Collins.
Geographers' Map Company Ltd. (A-Z Maps) was established in London on 25 August 1936. The company's most famous publication, the iconic A-Z Atlas and Guide to London, was created by Phyllis Pearsall, the founder of A-Z, who explored every street in London to create the first edition.
Since then, A-Z has become the trusted source for street maps and atlases, as well as developing Visitors' Guides, Road Atlases and the Adventure Map series for walkers. Since 2020, A-Z is published by HarperCollins Publishers - producing maps, atlases and books that bring the streets of the United Kingdom to life.
