A few weeks ago, the good folks over at Bookpeople of Moscow asked if I would be interested in helping them create a map of the store and I was all like, "Boo yeah!" Except I didn't say that at all. I probably said something more like, "Absolutely. That sounds like a great project." Not nearly as exciting as "boo yeah", but it's more professional and socially acceptable.
Working with Bookpeople is always great. I mean, it's a bookstore. And bookstores are AWESOME. But this one is particularly awesome. As are books. And maps are pretty darned cool in their own right. So a project that combines those things? That's the Optimus Prime Awesome. It's an ornate, hardcover, first edition tome of awesome.
Anyhoo, I put together several concepts and sent them over. They ended up liking all of them (well, almost all of them. One of them needs a bit of revising), and now they're slated to become bookmarks. I think that's pretty cool.
So here are the maps:
