i love these ceramics by london illustrator laura carlin. i keep coming back and staring at them.
for the last seven years i’ve illustrated a monthly map for elle decor magazine. the project just came to an end, and my last map for the magazine will run in a couple months. i’ve wanted to publish a book of my favorite maps for a long time– and that book is finally here! it was a challenging project for me, printing overseas for the first time and dealing with the stresses that come along with that. but i’m so happy with how the book turned out. it’s hardbound with a really nice textured cover that reminds me of old library books, in a warm, creamy off-white/yellow. i wanted the book to function both as a coffee table book and a children’s book. i chose 40 maps to include in the book; 20 from within the US and 20 beyond the US. i’m offering a special price for today and through the weekend, $29 instead of $35. thanks for taking a look!
