Map Love Madness Begins


8.5x11" map, stitching, colored pencil 

I will be the first to say that I am obsessed with making maps. I've read a lot of books about maps, books that include maps, and I dream of maps. Off on a bunch of tangents which involve stitching, painting, and collage. It's a map quest.

Reading about the history of maps, looking at map art, reading books with maps has sparked so many visions of maps going through my head. If you like maps, you'll like Jill Berry's book Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking.
