In this edition of Book Notes, Ricë Freeman-Zachery reviews Personal Geographies: Explorations in Mixed-Media Mapmaking, by Jill K. Berry. When Ricë was young she didn’t like maps, and Geography was not her strongest subject. But now Ricë loves them, and loves learning from them, especially from Jill. Jill not only knows a lot about mixed-media mapmaking, but she knows a lot about maps in general. And from Personal Geographies, Ricë has learned that maps are just as much fiction as they are truth, because the mapmaker designed the map through their own version of reality. Ready to be inspired?
