“But rather than pushing us violently away, the multiple frames around the map create a space between the world of the reader and the world of the novel-a space precisely the size of a boy’s imagination”

I liked this sentence because it shows that maps have a much greater purpose than we all think.   I find it interesting that even though maps are often times thought of a mundane, or boring, that they can still provide us with creativity and imagination.  Take the Brennan Map collection, for example, the map with the astronomical illustrations surrounding the map provides a much more visually appealing aspect for the map, other than just the area that is being mapped, which is a nice change of pace for the viewer.
