A map of the world according to illustrators and storytellers.

I fell in love with a book.

In A Map of the World According to Illustrators and Storytellers, the fine folks of Gestalten collect more than 500 maps by artists, illustrators, and designers representing the creative zeitgeist of modern cartography around the world, ranging from the astoundingly accurate and detailed to the marvelously abstract and utopian.

“Cartography can be an incredible form of escapism, as maps act as proxies for experiences."
