While passing through Cambridge on the way to meet up with friends for a Christmas dinner, I was introduced to the work of French artist Elisabeth Lecourt.
She makes garments from vintage maps - everything for the globe-trotter
and the girl about town. What is it this thing I have about maps? My earliest ambition that I remember was as a result of sketching childish maps of the banks along Bradford Beck - it was to walk through France mapping life as I went. I got as far as Paris - in May 68 - and the rest, as they say, is history! To visit Elisabeth's website, just click here.
