Fun With Maps

Those of you who regularly visit TBTP know how fond I am of maps—both real and fictional. New York City-based artist Jake Berman does deep dives into archives and library collections to discover historic plans and engineering documents from municipal and regional transit agencies to discover source materials for brilliantly re-imagined maps. Utilizing these historic documents Berman has designed a series of colorful, clever maps that he sells on his website. If you love maps as much as this humble blogkeeper, take a look at the entire collection.
