"Discover the wonders of cartography through very interesting mixed-media projects that get our hands dirty, and our minds alive to who we are. The projects found in Personal Geographies are interesting not only because of the quality methods that they teach, but because of the meaningful thoughts that they provoke." --Jenny Doh/Crescendoh
"Quite simply, the best book I have received for review in a very long time. It does what a great book is supposed to do: Inspire, inform, teach. Berry kept it personal, and at the same time included enough history to make it a true resource. The projects are terrific and there isn't a single dud. That's something I say about once in a decade." --Judi Kauffman/Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine/Paper Creations Magazine
"I was taken aback with the true uniqueness of Personal Geographies. There is truly no book out there like this. Personal Geographies takes readers on a journey of self-discovery by creating a series of different artistic maps. Those looking to expand their current artistic repertoire need to pick this up right away." --Christen Olivarez/Editor-In-Chief, Director of Publishing/Somerset Studio
