Discussion: Maps

Discussion: Maps

  When I get a new book there are a few things I do first. Admire the cover, stroke the spine, smell the fresh cut paper. But there’s something I enjoy much more than that, and I don’t get to do it with every book. I love nothing more than to open a new fantasy […]
