A map is defined as a drawing of the earth’s surface, or part of that surface, showing the shape and position of different countries, political boarders, natural features such as rivers and mountains, and artificial features such as roads and buildings. When tasked to design a map, I wanted to create a map that represented more than a physical place. I began thinking about all the stories and tales I grew up reading and that others would also have a connection to. I was inspired by how when I read a book I am transported to a whole new place and living a different life. It isn’t just flat words on a page, but a whole new world to explore.
