Isle of Knowledge

Isle of Knowledge is a fantastic illustrated map created by the extraordinary typographer, designer, illustrator and writer Marian Bantjes for the British magazine and website Varoom . Bantjes’ beautiful map was made especially for Varoom’s themed issue “Knowledge”. It lovingly explores the “destinations and paths we end up on in pursuit of knowledge”.

If you’re intrigued by the map, check-out Bantjes’ amazing book, I Wonder, which explores the interdependency between word and image.







And, if you’re still interested, take a look at the video from her TED talk in 2010.
