It's a situation we are all acquainted with: planning to visit friends in an unfamiliar part of the city, you draw yourself arudimentary map with detailed directions. In March 2008, graphic designer Kris Harzinski founded the Hand Drawn Map Association in order to collect just such drawings of the everyday. Fascinated by these accidental records of a moment in time, he soon amassed a wide variety of maps, ranging from simple directions to fictional maps, to maps of unusual places, including examples drawn by well-known historical figures such as Abraham Lincoln, Ernest Shackleton, and Alexander Calder.

From Here to There celebrates these ephemeral documentsusually forgotten or tossed aside after having served their purposegiving them their due as artifacts representing stories from people's lives around the world. There is the young woman suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who created maps of the Humira injections on her stomach and thighs to help her remember the sites, and give them time to heal. Or the young boy who imagined a whole country for ants and put it to paper. Lucas from Australia drew an obsessively detailed map of his local traffic island, and a teenage girl contributed a map of her high school locker. Two American tourists got lost in the Bulgarian mountains following the hand drawn map of a local, and Britanny from Denmark drew directions to an animal rights protest in Copenhagen. The maps featured in From Here to There are as varied and touching as the stories they tell.

Review:

"I love that at the time they were drawn, these maps were useful and meant to explain something. But now these saved maps become records of a moment passed." --Book By Its Cover, September 20, 2010

"The Hand Drawn Map Association delivers this fascinating book which looks [at] the tossed aside world of personal map making." --Selectism, August 23, 2010

"Charting childhood memories, fantastic islands, and fictional territories, drawings from FROM HERE TO THERE: A CURIOUS COLLECTION OF THE HAND DRAWN MAP ASSOCIATION epitomize the idiosyncratic nature of any idealized locale." --Book Forum, Summer, 2010

"Thank you, Princeton Architectural Press, for bringing this fascinating book to my attention." --Ephemera Blog, August, 2010

"From Here to There is a fascinating anthology of hand drawn maps collated by the Hand Drawn Map Association." --ACEJET 170, August 30, 2010

"I think this is one of those books that people will spend some quality time with, both reading from cover to cover and flipping it open from time to time for inspiration." --Design Notes, August 18, 2010

"From the topographically queastionable to the disproportionate landmarks that dwarf whole countries, be it scribbled on a scrap bit of loo roll or an overly descriptive diagram, the maps in From Here to There are a fascinating collection." --It's Nice That, August 31, 2010
