The Art of Illustrated Maps
"For the ancients, maps were the most valuable tool in comprehending and conceptualizing the complexities of their planet and the universe." The Art of Illustrated Maps by John Roman is the first book ever to fully explore conceptual, “illustrated” style mapping. Author, educator and map illustrator John Roman correlates common not-to-scale maps as the “creative non-fiction of cartography,” and in his 208 page book, reveals how and why our minds instinctively accepts the artistic license invoked in creating imaginative maps.
