What can I say?

If you been to Burning Man any year since 2001, you've almost certainly seen my friend Lisa Hoffman's annual masterpiece of the official Black Rock City map, almost certainly when you were handed one at the gate to the event.

Even if you haven't ever been to the countercultural arts festival, you can still admire Hoffman's work, especially the progression of strikingly different styles.

Well, she's at it again, and the 2007 edition, with its leafy interpretation of the Green theme, is yet another triumph. That's really all I have to say on the matter.

I'm off to the playa now.
