This week I discussed some amazing books on illustrated map making:
You Are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination by Katharine Harmon
The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography by Katharine Harmon
Plotted: A Literary Atlas by Andrew DeGraff
and don’t forget to join the great new Sketchbook Skool kourse, Let’s Make a Map!

Enjoyed this Danny, I will look up these books. Thank you.
Interesting books. I love the storytelling qualities of map art and I have signed up for Nate’s class. Hooray! Cheers-
Great illustrated talk… it would have been funny (pun intended) had there been a “Ha-Ha” (e.g. a recess between a garden and landscape) on the Hell map in book 2.
Wonderful! The video clip on Amazon is interesting: https://www.amazon.com/Plotted-A-Literary-Atlas-Clip/dp/B01FYJ1RWQ
Thanks for this great recommendations.
I will surely look for “Plotted” and reread all the beautiful books again.
But… didn’t you forget something? I remember that some of the artists in “An Illustrated Journey” include sometimes simple – sometimes elaborate map drawings to their travel sketchbooks.
Super interesting. I did a whole series of paintings – acrylics on top of maps. Maybe I’ll post some of sb SBS site. All signed up for klass!
