In 2011, as the distinguished visiting writer at the University of Wyoming’s writing program, Rebecca Solnit launched a Laramie atlas modeled after her book Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, in a class of graduate students cotaught by local writer Alyson Hagy. Cartographers Ben Pease and Shizue Seigel and local artists joined the project and brought it to completion. Accompanied by Shizue Seigel’s photographs.
Maps are invitations in a more direct and exhilarating way than images or words… you can locate whatever the map shows and then you can locate yourself in relation to it…. Maps are also invitations, to orient yourself and to disorient yourself and explore. — Rebecca Solnit
