Maps are almost always informative and interesting, but these art prints by Michael Tompsett are so lovely they transcend simply exchanging information.

My favorite is this tube map.

It is amazing how only a few visual cues can make up a recognizable world map.

Have a wonderful Tuesday,

Sarah from Design Flourishes

    All those are gorgeous. I wish I could just fill my walls with maps. Or that might be overdoing it just slightly…

    This is such a cute post! I’ve seen a few of these maps but never together. Thank you for this post! <3

    I love these maps! They were the inspiration for my blog post today. Absolutely lovely interpretation of such a practical, political, difficult concept — sticking people in boxes and limiting culture to landmasses. Fantastic job bringing a messy, human element to the task. Bravo!

  7. The tube map is my favorite, too! Very cool.
