hap • tic: referring to the sense of touch
We’re delighted to be carrying gorgeous quilts from Haptic Lab. These handmade quilted maps capture the spirit of life on the coast of Maine in beautiful color and design.
Each quilt is exquisitely conceived and hand crafted by a small group of artisans and designers at Haptic Lab in Brooklyn, NY. Every one is a work of art to be cherished for a lifetime…and beyond.
Choose from Casco Bay, Southern Maine, or Penobscot Bay in two different colorways. Stop in to see – and touch – these lovely quilts!
Here’s another great gift idea for the history buff, cartographer, or bibliophile in your life. The Historical Atlas of Maine.
This award-winning book was complied after more than a decade of research. An overview of the history and historical geography of Maine in cartographic form, it takes you from the end of the last Ice Age to contemporary times.
The book examines the lives of the people who have lived in Maine for the past 13,000 years – from the Native tribes to European exploration and settlement. It studies major events in the state’s history from the American Revolution and Maine’s statehood to economic and industrial milestones that have made Maine the wonder that it is today.
The Historical Atlas of Maine includes maps, both historical and ones created for the volume. These maps and illustrations, full-color plates, graphs, text, and design make this book an important and informative record of Maine’s unique, and often overlooked, past.
Here are a few of the awards this extraordinary book has received:
The Globe Book Award for Public Understanding of Geography, American Association of Geographers, 2016
“Best of Show,” Cartographic and Geographic Information Society, 2016
“Best Book/Atlas,” Cartographic and Geographic Information Society, 2016
Excellence in Publishing Award, Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance, 2016
