PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC You Are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination Mapmaking fulfills one of our most ancient and deepseated desires understanding the world around us and our place in it But maps need not just show continents and oceans there are maps to heaven and hell to happiness and despair maps of moods matrimony and mythological places There are maps to popular culture from Gulliver s Island to Gilligan s Island There are speculative maps of the world before it was known and maps to secret places known only to the mapmaker Artists maps show another kind of uncharted realm the imagination What all these maps have in common is their creators willingness to venture beyond the boundaries of geography or convention i You Are Here i is a wide ranging collection of such superbly inventive maps These are charts of places you re not expected to find but a voyage you take in your mind an exploration of the ideal country estate from a dog s perspective a guide to buried treasure on Skeleton Island a trip down the road to success or the world as imagined by an inmate of a mental institution With over maps from artists cartographers and explorers i You are Here i gives the reader a breath taking view of worlds both real and imaginary
