Making a Map
Artella's online creative newspaper has this little segment called "map of the day". It features all sorts of maps, from antique to imaginary, from artistic to anatomic. I decided to try my hand at an artistic map; this one will be appearing in the paper on Sunday. It is a map of a piece of my heritage. It shows the city of Hamburg, which my grandparents fled just before the war. The bombed out buildings are what remained when they returned. The little boy is my father.
