buy this book but be ready to break its spine...too many maps have been reproduced on a double page, signs get lost in the fold; even maps drawn originally on a double page are reproduced so that the real fold and the one that is reproduced do not correspond. Original size of the reproduced maps or scale of the reproduction is not mentioned. The choice of the fonts, the quality and colors of the paper, the size of the book are better choices than the two first ones.

Really, really interesting book, with some lovely imagery inside. Looks good up on the shelf along side my other art books.

5.0 out of 5 stars You are HERE, but want to be THERE 30 Oct. 2010
By Kevin McCloskey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
From Here to There is the first book from the The Hand Drawn Map Association. Philadelphia-based artist Kris Harsinski has been collecting hand drawn maps for years. He finds maps dropped in laundromats. He sets up a table at indy lit events like the Philadelphia Zine fest and begs strangers to draw maps. Of course, he put out an open call on the internet. He has accumulated hundreds of maps; the variety is quite astounding. In 2008 he founded the Hand Drawn Map Association, or HDMA.

Maps vary, but most have a very specific purpose, and it is not always a matter of getting from point A to point B. Take the map of the best places to skateboard in Dallas, Pennsylvania. I found it charming, even though I am not likely to use that information. Cartoonist Dash Shaw's map of Boney Borough, loosely based on the original plans for Epcot, serves as reader's guide to his Body World comics. Another remarkable entry was by Marilyn Murphy, a young lady suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, who drew a body map of her medical injections.

There are maps by Stefan Sagmeister, Daniel McCloskey and Shakes. Full disclosure, I know some of these guys. I got to know Stefan Sagmeister just a bit when I drove him home to Manhattan during a blizzard after his talk at Kutztown, PA. Shakes,I've met him, too. He is a well-known zinester and busker in Pittsburgh's Strip district. Daniel McCloskey is my son, the founder of Pittsburgh's legendary Cyberpunk Apocalypse Writer's Cooperative. Shakes and Daniel contributed a map of Post-Apocalyptic Pittsburgh.

If you do draw maps, the HDMA is still looking for quirky work. From Here to There begins with this note: We would love to add your work to the collection. Please consider submitting your maps or diagrams to us at: handmaps.org

1.0 out of 5 stars poor design is stumbling block to charming thoughtful subject matter; save your money 11 Dec. 2013
By linda jane Lou - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
great idea...BUT. The maps are too small and the book cannot be fully opened; so it is very frustrating not being able to read the portion of the map that is lost in the spine of the book and therefore not readable. This book should have been printed in a hardcover formatted book that will lay flat so the art can be fully seen. Even if that made it pricey, at least it would have been functional. I was buying it as a gift for someone that will be annoyed by the poor design, so I am sending it back. Great idea for subject matter, but hopelessly poor design and execution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea for a book but difficult to read some of the maps 24 Nov. 2013
By Sharon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the idea of this book, but the maps are way too small. I read the reviews before I bought it saying they were too small but bought it anyway to see for myself. One reviewer said to look at the maps online instead but not sure how he is doing that. Glad to have the book for my collection but I would have enjoyed it so much more if I could actually read what some of the maps are saying.
3.0 out of 5 stars I longed for something a bit more special 8 Feb. 2016
By Angela Alvarez Velez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had hoped that the book would contain more unique maps. Some of the mare true treasures but many were not as special as I would have liked. They were just normal, ordinary maps that were graphically ordinary and the story that goes with them did not wow me. Some, though, are wonderful and for those few the book is worth it.

I was expecting some of the classic hand-drawn maps from earlier centuries,
rather than more recent maps drawn primarily by students
