What people are saying

I’ve just received the map -- it’s absolutely amazing, a legitimate treasure. It’s so cool to experience these mountains in a new medium; there are structures and continuities in the landscape that I hadn’t been able to perceive on ordinary maps (or by hiking there for many years).

I’m back from the field and had this wonderful shipment waiting in my office. I’ve just thrilled with the results. They look great and are a work of art for sure. Thank you so much.

Dick Mynen, Prince George, BC

Actually holding it in person is beyond breathtaking. The three dimensions, the bridges, the tiny shadows of the ridges cast in light....all amazing. Thank you so so very much.

I’m blown away. I can’t wait till my kids can see and understand this as well as how you made it.

Perfect!!!

The unmistakable granite spires of the Bugaboos have drawn climbers and adventurers to the Purcell Mountains for over a century. The word Bugaboo is said to have been used by prospectors in the late nineteenth century to mean a dead end, which was what the gold rush that brought them to these high peaks turned out to be.
