The allure of the City of Lights is often lost in the traditional form of a printed map, yet somehow that's not the case when it comes to the Map of Paris by Antoine Corbineau. The French designer took it upon himself to capture as best as he could the magic of this illustrious city through the use of modern illustrations and neon colors. More of an art piece than a map, it gives people a new perspective on what to expect when visiting.

From a bikini-clad pole dancer in the Pigalle district to boats with curlicue wakes floating down the River Seine, Map of Paris by Antoine Corbineau is full of unique sights. The artist reveals, "I had no intention of being exhaustive. I wanted to show a fresh and free view of Paris."
