Cartography at home: for the housebound flaneur or fugueur

For the flaneur



For the aviatrix


For s/he who yearns to go sailing


For the fugueur


And at last, for those who merely want to read about the human impulse to travel (gone horribly wrong) check out Ian Hacking’s fascinating book on the story of Albert the first documented ‘fugueur”(about transient mental illnesses and the history of psychiatry and psychiatric categories).
