By: Brandon Bastaldo (Prodigy) Apr 2, 13

Even with the advent of high-tech digital mapping services like Google Earth, the way we use and look at maps hasn’t really changed all that much over the last century, but The World Map According to Illustrators and Storytellers is a vibrant, beautifully colored introduction to some of the funky topographic alternatives we’ve never explored.

By collecting these custom maps made by a new generation of illustrators, map makers and designers, this World Map showcases everything from culturally detailed map creations to purposefully naive maps.

Inspired by classic and contemporary map forms, The World Map According to Illustrators cleverly adds new and exquisite touches of personal history to the same cities, countries and continents we’ve been inhabiting for centuries.
