Publishers Penguin Random House commissioned me to design this fold-out map of Europe for the inside cover of the new novel "The Convert" by Stefan Hertmans, the fictional tale of a medieval noblewoman's escape from France with her lover across Europe and to Egypt. The map show's the character's route beginning at Rouen, passing through Provence, Navarre in Spain, Genoa, Sicily and finally across the Mediterranean Sea into Egypt. Key locations mentioned in the text are highlighted, along with several other important cities of the period.
