From origami to paper cutting and decoupage, love of paper crafting has soared, and with it the variety of paper types used by artists. Among these are maps - an apt choice for any crafter: they're easy to find, often free, meant to be folded, and their colorful surfaces add an allure of travel to every project. Making Art from Maps is equal parts inspiration and fun. Jill K. Berry, author ofMap Art Lab returns, bringing her expertise in maps and her wide-ranging skills as an artist with her. With her cartographic connections, she takes you on a gallery tour, introducing you to the work of some of the most exciting artists creating with maps today. Designer interviews are accompanied by 25 accessible how-to projects of her own design that teach many of the techniques used by the gallery artists. --Publisher
