Viking Studio/published by the Penguin Group 2009
Soft cover – 240 pages including Notes and Image credits

This is another Table Book that is easily ‘flipped’ through, scanning the pages with the occasional stop-and-read. These are what I call filler books. Filling-in the occasional lapse between literary tomes.

As the title states, this is ‘an atlas of cartographic curiosities’. So, allowing for a slightness of latitude – Frank Jacobs follows his imagination into the bizarre and strange, sharing with us, interesting alternatives to the science of map making.

    I love the German map. It’s a work of art.Going to see if I can find a cheap copy of this book somewhere.

      You can get a ‘used’ copy from Amazon at less than half the price. I found one for 1 cent US. Good luck!

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
