Not only does this book abound with cool techniques, what you learn about yourself by going through the projects is amazing. There's an entire world in me yet to be explored and these exercises are the ticket!

Love this book! Review by Linda L in Tennessee

Fascinated with maps and/or travel? As a Navy brat, I am most able to reference my life by where I lived at any given time. This book beautifully illustrates and describes how to translate travel and maps to life experiences visually. It offers templates and detailed explanations to aid even the most hesitant in translating their travels artfully. Unqualified recommendation.
