Ordnance Survey Objects to Comic Novel’s Cover

Book cover: The Hills Are Stuffed with Swedish Girls The Ordnance Survey’s lawyers are going after the publishers of a comic novel, The Hills Are Stuffed with Swedish Girls, whose cover parodies the OS’s Landranger series, Grough reports: “In place of the OS’s initialled north arrow are the author’s initials and there are a few new conventional signs on the cover, including a bra, a tablet and a part-drunk pint of beer. The scale is described as one beer to one mile.” The author and publisher say it’s clearly a parody; the OS says it’s trying to protect its brand’s reputation.
