Maps assist us remember the world. This book features the most original and sought-after map illustrators whose work is in step with the zeitgeist. Drawing a map means understanding our world a bit better. For centuries, we’ve used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large—and to convey them to others. On the one hand, maps are used to illustrate areal relationships, including distances, dimensions, and topographies. On the other, maps can also serve as projection screens for quite a lot of display formats, such as illustration, data visualization, and visual storytelling. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the world around us are becoming more relevant. Publications, the tourism industry, and other commercial parties are the usage of these up to date, personal maps to showcase specific regions, to characterize local scenes, to generate moods, and to tell stories beyond sheer navigation. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers are currently discovering their passion for more than a few forms of illustrative cartography. A Map of the World is a compelling selection of their work—from accurate and surprisingly detailed representations to personal, naïve, and modernistic interpretations. The featured projects from around the globe range from maps and atlases inspired by classic forms to cartographic experiments and editorial illustrations.
