I've got the whole world in my hands. Well almost. Before I head off to print the long awaited World Maps, I'd love to hear your feedback. Here's my concern: with so many countries in the world, do you think the map ends up looking a little text heavy? I've tried to keep the font size similar to the other maps for consistency but obviously needed to scale it down a bit in some areas. I'd love to hear your thoughts...
This past week has been a pretty fun one (besides getting sick - again). Last weekend I attended a meeting with Céline and Jonathan MacKay, the duo behind Sustain as well as their latest project, Pure Green Magazine. They came all the way to Montreal from Ontario to meet with myself, Michelle, Anile and Marie-Eve. I won't go into too many details, but sufficient to say this project has got me super excited and dreaming about all the wonderful possibilities for Pure Green Magazine. If you haven't checked out their winter issue yet, you can find it here. Céline, the editor-in-chief wrote a great little blog post about our first meeting too, lots more photos there.

Last week my mom mailed Big Chuck and me the Stolen Kisses (Baisers Volés) DVD. It's a French film from 1968 by French director François Truffaut. Have you seen it? It's really charming and wonderful. I was searching online for some stills from the movie to add to this post and found that you can actually watch the whole thing on YouTube! I highly recommend making a date with your computer and a glass of wine and getting lost in the streets of Paris, (also - a fun way to brush up on your French)!
The Map Series has been selling so well in my shop that I thought I would give you even more of a good thing. Maps of Canada, Europe and the USA are now available in 19" x 13" as well as the original 10" x 8". The larger maps fit perfectly in the matted IKEA Ribba Frame (19 3/4" x 15 3/4") just like the rest of the English Muffin posters.
I've had some requests for maps of Australia & New Zealand, as well as a world map! Keep your eyes peeled for more additions to the map series in the coming year.
