“With the rise in new technology people appear to be ditching traditional maps in favour of sat-navs and mobile devices.”
Why does progress mean that paper maps may disappear?
Maps are beautiful. They’re so full of possibilities.
I have maps at home, on walls. I have a big atlas. They’re not just lovely things, they’re useful too.
I use maps to plan trips.
Find new places. Explore.
Check where I’m going, marking the maps as I go along.
And I use maps when I come back from trips to see where I’ve been.
