    Great Inspiration

    Lots of great looking projects exploring map crafting, a personal favorite of mine. Need to be an experienced crafter on most project or at least willing to look elsewhere for more instructions to complete some of the projects. Interesting text to accompany the labs. Overall, I think it's a winner, with lots of great inspiration.
