    While my coal black little heart normally dislikes art books, I also happen to love maps, and you can find this book at the intersection of those interests a collection of hand drawn maps from around the world, along with tiny vignettes giving them some backstory My favorite section was Found Maps , in which people shared the maps they had stumbled across, which had still been hand drawn by other people My favorite Steffanie s roommate Joel found this map when he was repairing ductwork in his ei [...]

    Disclaimer One of my maps is included in this book That said, it s a really cool collection of a huge variety of hand drawn maps by ordinary people It s a standard sized trade paperback as opposed to a coffee table book , which I find a little odd for a book that is mostly images, since it s not really the kind of book people are going to throw in a purse or briefcase to read on the bus, but it is a fun book to browse, a la Katharine Harmon s The Map as Art.

    I liked this hand drawn maps or even just recommendations being something I love about travelling or even just experiencing new local places The landmarks people choose are always interesting.

    Pages and pages of maps From the actual and informative ones to fictional ones All the pages are in colour, and they are all so beautiful I love it Well, I would have loved it if it had a map of fictional worlds Like Hogwarts and Narnia and Middle Earth oh, you can t because of the copyright Okay Found Chronicle Books Daikanyama Tokyo ClosingSale

    THE ART AND REVELATIONS OF HAND DRAWN MAPSGoogle maps are unsurpassed for convenience and scale Lost in this modern marvel is the unleashed personality of a hand drawn map Not too long ago, in order to get to a friend s house, or to find a cool restaurant, someone would need to draw you a map on a scrap of paper That sketched map was an abstraction, a distillation that said almost as much about the drawer as about the location Each person compresses reality differently The thickness of a line, t [...]

    Such a lovely idea, so poorly executed.I mean, here s a really nice intricate hand drawn map So let s print it across two pages of a normal sized paperback book That way you ll have great difficulty reading much of anything, but especially the chunk of it in the middle that s going to disappear in to the bindingEssentially five stars for the concept, dinged substantially for thoughtless presentation.

    Antologia del sito handmaps che raccoglie dagli utenti mappe disegnate a mano per gli scopi pi diversi dare indicazioni ma anche ricordare i luoghi dell infanzia o tracciare i tramonti dalla finestra A dispetto delle mie alte aspettative, poche sono graficamente interessanti, in compenso alcune sono davvero poetiche.

    I love the concept here than the execution a collection of hand drawn maps How can you lose But the result is spotty some of the maps really aren t that interesting or unique at all, and the mass market sized format means that some of the most interesting ones are printed too small to explore But there are a few gems in here, and some nice visual inspiration throughout.

    great collection of hand drawn maps and directions imaginary and exciting


    Mauri

    Kind of meh I wish the maps were bigger It did inspire me to draw a few maps though.


    Helen

    Great book to flick through whilst relaxing with a coffee Have read it cover to cover many times.


    Clare

    Extremely engaging, some of the maps are absolute gems My favorites were those that created a good narrative.
