Happy birthday, Ursula K. Le Guin

79 today. Geography was a key ingredient in her Earthsea novels (which I read again earlier this year, and the Other Wind for the first time). Did you know that her website has maps of Earthsea?


Is that crayon? I've been looking at a lot of crayon coloring lately, and would swear it is. Cool! Maps of Archaic Latium from her new novel, Lavinia, are also available from her site.

I just reread the series this year too. I loved the maps, finding myself thumbing back to them just about every time locations are mentioned in the novels. The geography is extremely important to the storyline.
