Introduction

Do you love a good map? Could you spend hours poring over Google Earth, looking at random islands and tiny villages up in the mountains? Me too.

I love maps. I love looking at them, memorizing them and making them. Over the years I've drawn a sizable multitude of them. From Japan to Indiana, Africa to Seattle. It's been more than just a hobby, it's become my great quest.

This project is a great way to encapsulate my journey so far. I've learned so much and have improved my craft with the help of some great artists.

The Book

What better way to showcase 75+ maps than a big ol' coffee table book? This book is designed to be displayed. Meaning, it should look good if you leave it out on your table. It is full of beautiful drawings, colorful pictures and some light reading. 

The main attraction is the collection of the 50 US states. I have written a little something for each state (some thoughts and fun facts) and included detail shots of each map.

 Book details 

It is 12 inches tall and 10 inches wide. That means it opens up to a beautiful 20 inch spread. You'll notice something unique about the design. All the words are written in my handwriting (I scanned in my handwriting and turned it into a usable font). All other little details are also hand drawn....except the barcode. 

Here are the specs:

  •  Hardcover wrapped in fabric with gold letters
  • All pages are in full color on high quality paper. 
  • 190 Pages
  • 10 inches x 12 inches
  •  Epic dust jacket (the sleeve that goes over the hardcover)

Sneak Peak

After the 50 states, I have "Countries and Such." That includes places like: New Zealand, Italy, Ireland (in English and Irish), Norway, Scotland, Mexico, Canada, England, Germany and more.  

After that, I've included some practical stuff. Things like "How to Draw," a Key and some "Tools of the Trade." These should be a fun overview of the map making process.

I've also included some "Easter Eggs." Some are pretty obvious and some are extremely challenging.

Here's what the title page looks like:

      Some of the maps are wrong with key geographical features in the wrong place or missing

      Beautiful and fantastical book

      I love looking at this book. It's one of those books you can admire and dream about the cool places you've been and where you want to go next. I'm a big fan of traveling, looking at maps and learning about new places, so when I saw this book, I had to tell my dad to give it to me for my birthday this year. Super excited for the high-points book next.

      The turtle sticker pack is super cute, too.
