The personalised map

il_570xN.300400108.jpg

While adorning your bedroom wall with a world map can make you feel like quite the scholar, it can also make you feel like a totally useless grain of sand.

Because no matter how precise your magnifying glass is, your presence is never of any importance in the grand scheme of things. Sorry, but it's the painful truth.

Well, things are about to change, you hear us?

Matt Macgregor Glen has created a way of making you the most important landmark, helping to eradicate all those melodramatic feelings of worthlessness. His You Are Here maps pinpoint your homestead, wherever that may be. Careful of that ego though.

You can order your very own right here and see more of his work http://www.mattmacgregorglen.co.uk/self-initiated-3/you-are-here/.

Plus, Matt gets extra points for featuring a certain magazine in the final image below. No clues but it rhymes with fraught whist.
