Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Q+A with illustrative mapmaker Alex Hotchin

In Wild Issue #176, Winter 2020, we featured the work of Alex Hotchin, a mapmaker who gave us ‘Larapinta Dreaming’, her unique take on central Australia’s iconic trail. After growing up in the outback and attending School of the Air, Alex is now based in Melbourne, from where she creates stunningly beautiful maps for clients around the world. She has also been exhibited in Istanbul, New York, Morocco, Japan, and, of course, Melbourne. Alex recently took the time out to answer some questions from Wild’s editor, James McCormack about her background, her work, and mapmaking itself.
