One of my wife's colleagues lives on Whidbey Island. She loves taking visitors on trips around the island, and as a map aficionado, had long dreamed of having a custom map on her dining room table so she and her guests could look at the map before heading out to explore. When she learned that I make maps, we had a discussion about what she had in mind, and then she hired me to make a giant map! This was a real treat for me, since the vast majority of the maps I make are digital.
