Paula Scher: The Maps

As I have commented several times, maps are more than "a how to get there guide". Maps as an element of design can be used to evoke an emotional response. When artists use maps as a theme in their work, I always want to take a closer look.

The Maya Stendhal Gallery in New York frequently features the work of Paula Scher.

"Renowned graphic designer Paula Scher [creates] intricate, colorful and obsessively detailed maps of different regions of the world."
