Current book map projects
Earlier this year I wrote blog posts about two interesting and very different projects
I included examples of these in the last newsletter about different map types for publications - a map for a book about how policy and infrastructure displaced neighbourhoods in Dallas, and maps of travel destinations for a quarterly magazine in Switzerland.
This spring and summer I continued to work with an author from Australia who's writing a book about soldiers from his community, who were prisoners-of-war in southeast Asia during World War 2. The series of maps includes camps and details along the Thai-Burma railway, a map of Java, ships that were lost at sea, and more.
I've been working on maps for an atlas of American history since August - they've asked for approximately 40 custom maps. They will also include historical maps and existing maps where appropriate, but custom maps are needed to combine relevant information and authors' new research.
I also worked with author Eileen Stephenson, who writes historical fiction set in the Byzantine Empire. She wanted a two-page map showing the boundary of the empire in 1025 A.D., along with provinces and places mentioned in her book.
And I designed another map for author David Ebsworth's novels about protagonist Jack Telford's journeys in Europe and Africa. These sketch-style maps were fun to create!
And of course three more maps for Herbarella magazine - this time highlighting the regions of South Germany, Umbria in Italy, and Provence in France.
