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,

  1. 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!
