Living Maps : An Atlas of Cities Personified, Hardback Book

Living Maps : An Atlas of Cities Personified Hardback

Description

This curious collection of maps explores the unique personalities of 28 cities around the world, shedding light on the strange and marvelous ways in which humans interact with the places they call home.

Artist and creative cartographer Adam Dant dissects Manhattan in an anatomical diagram, traces the form of a Picasso nude in the streets of Monaco, and transforms the crisscrossing paths of boats on the Bosporus into the nerves of Istanbul.

Dant draws on the history, culture, and geography of each city and on the beguiling aesthetic of antique maps to create gorgeous works of cartographic art.

Witty, insightful, and adorned with a gold foil stamped cover, this book will capture the imaginations of travelers, map enthusiasts, history buffs, and dreamers.
