Cartography, Creatures, & Craquelin (A Melina Short)
Everyone was of the opinion that cartography was not a woman’s work. Quite frankly, everyone was wrong and had been for quite some time. The female brain – from what Melina West understood of it, though she understood a deal more about most other parts of the female anatomy – was exactly what cartography needed for transforming points of worldly data into artwork that informed as well as beautified.
The above is from Harvey Duckman Presents Volume 8 (the famous “No Dragons” issue) and you can read the rest of Alexandrina Brant’s Cartography, Creatures, & Craquelin (A Melina Short) along with several other amazing stories between its captivating covers (and we both hope you do!)
