thanks to designworklife.com for featuring trent edward’s project to redesign and illustrate judith schalansky’s atlas of remote islands. these are beautifully technical, curios 2-color illustrations that lend an enjoyable flair to the map-as-art genre. see the collection here.

this is one of a series from khuan+ktron for the good life. from what i’ve seen so far, they bring a colorful, dimensional quality to the places they illustrate, whether mapped from above, or shown in depth scale. see the feature at thefoxisblack.com.

this map adds a scale of hilarity to a sense of place, something you can only enjoy by going to the post and studying the close-ups. i love the idea of overlaying a map with life stories, and emily’s encapsulations say just enough, like “high school isn’t everything street” and “that used van was a bad idea gorge.” see more of her fantastic work at emilymcdowell.com
