Like many others, I love pretty much everything about maps, for many reasons and in many ways. Soon after I finished the first round of sketchbooks, I thought about the iconic appeal of a road atlas, and built a few from an old spiral-bound Michelin North America volume I had on hand.
I experimented with covers and endpapers until arriving at this version of the classic sketchbook.
With a road map cover over mint green cardstock.
Graphically chosen road map endpapers bound to the blank cream pages.
And all those invitational blank pages, awaiting your expression.
I *wish* I had thought of this option before I listed the sketchbook kits over at MMS+S; I like it that much, and will be adding it to the shop. For those of you who have already ordered sketchbook kits — thank you! — please message me if maps appeal and I’ll send you the components to add to your kits. Then we’ll all be happy and mappy!
