A Map of the World: The World According to Illustrators and Storytellers
The world of contemporary mapmaking is brought up-to-date in this revised and expanded edition of a best-selling book. For centuries we have used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large--and to convey them to others. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the geography around us are becoming even more relevant. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers have been discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography and A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work. This updated edition contains even more examples of their output, ranging from detailed representations to personal, naive, and contemporary interpretations.
