hand drawn

As I've mentioned, I love maps. Love to make them, love to look at them.

And that is why I love the Hand Drawn Map Association.

You can submit maps you've made or maps you found to them for their collection.

Pretty cool!

Those are wonderful! I love maps too, and just did a map treasury last night. Great minds think alike. . .

I guess I completely missed the fact that you love maps! My sister is a mapmaker (of the geo-political variety), so it's a growing fascination of mine as well. Check out these works (a conceptual series that makes use of maps):

These are so pretty, I adore maps. I have some friends who have wallpapered the whole of there bathroom in old vintage maps - it looks amazing!

Very cool indeed. I wish I stumbled upon some cool map since I have no drawing skills whatsoever.

Have you seen that book of maps from an imagined world? I can't remember the title, but I'm pretty sure 2 dutch (male) authors wrote it. I bought it for my dad at the Tate Modern and he flipped over it! Bet you would too :) Let me know if you want the title and I'll get it.
