Camilla Compass & Map

Since the beginning of M. Judson, we’ve put a whole lot of stock in the power of stories to shape the way you see the world. We believe books can illuminate the place you are, as well as take you where you’ve never been before. And in that spirit, we’re launching Camilla Compass and Map, a bespoke travel company with bookish inspiration.

New Orleans - Spring 2020


New Orleans! French quarter cocktails and Frenchman Street music, hurricanes, beignets, Mardi Gras beads, Marie Laveau and some of the finest regional food in the country. We loved our inaugural trip to The Crescent City so much, we started planning our return as we drove out of the Delta. We’ll be reading new books, talking to new writers, but we’re definitely going back to Bloody Mary’s to get our fortunes told. Stay tuned for details, spring 2020.

Lexington, KY - Fall 2020


Lexington! This part of Appalachia has been getting some well-deserved attention for its stories lately, and we’ve been listening. We’re planning a trip to the land of bourbon and thoroughbreds. We’ll tour distilleries, take in a day at the races, visit the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, and talk to the writers, food artisans, and smart folks that call this region home. Stay tuned for details, fall 2020.
