'Hand Drawn Maps - a guide for creatives', both written and illustrated by me and published internationally including Thames and Hudson in the UK and Chronicle in the US.  The book takes the reader on an adventure creating hand drawn maps in different formats; how to design features, hand letter, create compass roses and cartouches and see the world in a different way.
