Fictional Residences Made (a Little More) Real

“Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” If the famous opening line from Daphne DuMaurier’s proto-suspense novel, Rebecca, throws a shiver down your spine and a picture in your mind, you might want to see what the geek team from Manchester’s NeoMam Studios have been up to.

The British inforgraphic outfit digs creating visuals from our most undescribed moments. Recent projects have included a History of Halloween Costumes, the Health Benefits of Sex
and now, layouts from some of literature’s favorite houses. Manderly, of course, but also Bag End from The Hobbit, 221B Baker Street from A Study in Scarlet and other Sherlock Holmes novels, Thrushcross Grange from Wuthering Heights and many more.

We’re not entirely sure this exercise was as successful as some of the other infographics NeoMam has created. Maybe seeing something fictional imagined into being by someone other than the reader or the author is always going to be at least a little disappointing. (Hence all those movies that are never as good as the book.) You can make up your own mind, though because The Huffington Post shares the inforgraphic here.
