Mapping the Bay of Islands is a four-volume publishing project and represents the first collaborative endeavor of Pierre LeBlanc, Marlene MacCallum, Clifton Meador and David Morrish. The parameters for the collaboration were that each person would use the historical fact of James Cook’s mapping the Bay of Islands on the west coast of the island of Newfoundland in 1767 as the catalyst for their piece. Each was given one quadrant of Cook’s map of the Bay of Islands as the cover for their book. This resulted in four different visual/textual considerations of navigation.
