Insight into the world of traditional and contemporary maps and how they relate to and inspire personal mapmaking
A gallery of maps by contributors from around the world to spark your own creativity
From mapping your head, hands and heart to recording powerful memories or experiences, the maps in Personal Geographies are a gateway into the fascinating and meaningful world of you.

was happy to hear about this new book. i have had a lifetime interest in maps of all kinds. loved being the navigator for family trips, even the short ones. when i need directions to a new place i usually draw my own style map to use to get there. guess that makes me a cartophile.
