    Dear Henry and Jay, today your amazing compendium about the old paths and so many other interesting subjects in the West-Fjords arrived. The books are so nicely made, the map easily readable and ready for outdoor-use . . . Congratulations on this bibliophilic gem! As I am an ecologist by profession I’m looking forward to which news the “Notes on Ecology in the Westfjords” will tell us. We will keep you updated about our walks this summer. Kindly, Oliver

    The Westfjords map and books by @WayfindingGuide arrived today. My wife of course immediately seized these beautiful works of art. I’m only allowed “reasonable use with clean and dry hands” 😁

    Just got mine (in Australia) – so beautiful. I was really looking forward to these books and they are awesome. I could only back as a supporter to start with but added books during the survey and they are wonderful. Thank you so much!!
