You Are Here

I just got a book that a few readers might enjoy. You Are Here, Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination by Katharine Harmon shows a vast collection of drawings that blend between psychogeography and cartography. What is truely beautiful about this book is that Ms. Harmon juxtaposes maps from the 1700s with maps from contemporary interests that speak of parallel topics. The comparable topics show how cartography and psychological aspects have long lasting interactions beyond a contemporary interest. Recommended to me by Lori Napoleon with good reason. Thanks Lori!
