Map your neighborhood

Super-fun class, Kate, thank you!

I teach a course on maps and mapping (it's a design course, not a geography course) and I thought it'd be fun to turn one of the assignment briefs into a zine. This is an introductory exercise for the students to get their hands moving and senses tuned to mapping. I was trying hard to stick to black and white but I'm not sure it cuts it - would love thoughts on that. I attached a second version that uses some blue and photo printouts as a comparison.

It's a three-part assignment. Here's the first prompt / spread:

57782ace

And the second spread:

554cb023

And the third spread:

a7c56f1d

A summary of what's due on the back:

Here's the full zine with some photos instead of b/w as well as some color:

85b131f0

And as b/w only:

I'd really like to stick with black and white only, but does it work? Maybe colored paper instead? 

Any other thoughts and feedback are most welcome. Thank you!
