At once searching, lucid and engaged, Walking and Mapping is a remarkable primer for the study of an important and increasingly prominent cultural overlap.―Cartographica
Walking and Mapping is a veritable trove of generative ideas systematically unearthed as a 'subjective science' for inspired modes of engagement with the ground of everyday life. From Oulipian Pataphysics and Lettrist drift to Stalkers traversing the periphery of Rome, and from artists tracing Mexican and Moroccan border and immigration routes to microscopic landscapes and Intifada checkpoints, O'Rourke's book is a landmark contribution to authentic countercultural thinking.―Kristine Stiles, France Family Professor of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, Duke University (Endorsement)
Karen O'Rourke clearly has wide knowledge of the field and has provided a valuable and informative book. Walking and Mapping brings together, in an intelligent fashion, the state of the art in walking artistic practice. I am sure that for many readers it will be an engaging volume that will spark lots of new ideas.―Martin Dodge, Geography Department, The University of Manchester, and coauthor of Code/Space: Software and Everyday Life (Endorsement)
In Walking and Mapping, Karen O'Rourke links the 'territories' of art and cartography. Other works have addressed this as a series of conference-delivered chapters, but Walking and Mapping provides a detailed investigation of the topic―from the artist's perspective.―William Cartwright, School of Mathematical and Geospatial Sciences, RMIT University (Endorsement)

I would recommend it to anyone loving maps, and particularly to architects, artists and performers.
It is very challenging this idea of the feeling of a place trough the movement of the body, and linking with the top down overview of the map.
