About the Book

“My father sits the whole day behind his laptop”

That’s what my 12-year old daughter Amber wrote when she had to fill in my profession on some school form. When my wife showed it to me I knew it was time to fulfill an old dream: write a book! Not a comic book or a detective as in my original dreams but a short book about what I'm doing behind my laptop (or laptop or smartphone): baking simple maps in the spirit of Harry Beck’s Underground Map.

Unfortunately it is not possible to create the book with Leanpub as I want it to be so I decided to share it as a work in progress as Mapbakery on Google Drive
