Trailblazers: In A Visible City – map


Beautifully designed by Gareth Courage, with photographs and quotes from 120 young people from 20 schools across Birmingham. Printed by the proper map printing people, this is a beautiful art object. It is also a piece of social documentation setting out the hopes, aspirations and frustrations of a group of 14 and 15 year olds.
A preview of the map can be found on the Trailblazers page, but this lacks the young people’s direct quotes and 1200 photographs on the reverse! It’s a truely lovely thing – treat yourself, or someone you like.
