Wandermaps is a hand-illustrated maps project capturing places through your eyes and experiences. It's about being fully present and attentive to the world, noticing little things, and letting the paths we walk become a part of our story.
These maps represent your way of seeing the world. They are of your homes, your adventures afar, and your private walks and journeys. A wandermap can be a snapshot of your everyday sights (those magnolia trees on the road home), your treks (the perfect jazz club for lazy summer evenings), your hidden nostalgic gems (where you met X, or where you saw Y).
Wandermaps can be your private, creative way to reflect on a place, or it can be a handcrafted adventure dedicated to the people you love.
The meaningful places in our lives tell a story of who we are, where we've been, and what we do.
Making a personal map stitches this story together and celebrates our unique experiences. Whether it's of our childhood house or a vast metropolis, the act of mapmaking records our intimacy with a place. It's our world squeezed on a page, and a curated journey to share with others.
Wandermaps humanizes places. It opens our eyes, changes the way we see and experience them. It can change the way we travel. When you give a hand-illustrated map to another, you're giving something entirely unique: a personalized journey through a slice of time and space.
