Mark my words, this will be the next book I purchase. A Map of the World: According to Illustrators and Storytellers is a collaborative exercise and exploration in cartography:
"A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers are currently discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography. A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work—from accurate and surprisingly detailed representations to personal, naïve, and modernistic interpretations. The featured projects from around the world range from maps and atlases inspired by classic forms to cartographic experiments and editorial illustrations."
A number of my favorite maps are featured, like the Film Map from the design studio Dorothy and the Famille Summerbelle's paper cut maps. The book is edited by Antonis Antoniou, R. Klanten, S. Ehmann, and H. Helli and available through Gestalten.
