The Map Realm: The Fictional Road Maps of Adrian Leskiw

Adrian Leskiw is a self-described "avid map collector and roadgeek". He loves road maps so much, he can't get enough of them, so he creates his own road maps of imaginary places:

The island nation of Breda is:
...located somewhere in the south Pacific and was most likely a British colony at one time and consequently roundabouts and European interchange designs are prevalent. The nation's roads are divided into five classes and each one is identified by it's own unique color-coded signage. Motorways are blue, primary highways are green, secondary highways are red, regional roads are yellow, and local roads are white. Motorways are identified by the label Mx beside the international symbol for limited-access highways, primary and secondary highways are identified by a black on yellow Australian-style shield affixed on the appropriate background color, and regional and local roads are referred to by name or primary destinations...

I love these maps. I'll be planning my next holiday in Breda...

Those maps are outstanding! I think the people of Breda need to shake off the shackles of their highway department, though -- they are paying for an awful lot of motorway.
