All About Maps

In stock (50 items available)
Graphic designers and illustrators are today's cartographers, charting lands real and mythic, from gorgeous renderings in the field of travel to stylised representations of the worlds of our favourite games or fantasy series. Tangible or virtual, maps have the singular ability to show us our place in the world - where we are and where we are going. The mapmakers of previous centuries used their abilities on limiting the unknown, but today's pioneering designers show us what is possible. At the same time, they can convey information in a graphic way that enhances our experience of those places through creative embellishment. Some maps include infographics, which elevate their functionality, while others offer beautiful simplicity, incorporating stunning artwork more appropriate for gallery walls.
