This carefully curated book selects the most creative and interesting map design projects from around the world, and offers inspiration for designers and map-lovers alike. Covering themes including power, gentrification, literature, animals, plants and food, and showcasing hand-drawn, painted, digital, 3D scuplted and folded maps, The Art of Cartographics offers a slice of social history that is as beautiful as it is fascinating.
