I love maps!  My love for cartography sprang from an early love for adventure and planning where I would travel when I grew up. How would I navigate all the icecaps in Iceland, my trek throughout Africa, not to mention how could I reach Machu Pichu?  Add to this a touch of irony as I suffer from a complete and utter lack of a sense of direction, and you can see who I love both the form and function of a good map.

As a collector of metro maps, tube maps, village maps and the ultimate world maps, I am tickled pink to see maps making their cartographic way into design.

From magazine holders…

To inspiration on a mood board…

The crazy/complex map of the Paris Metro system

To a statement design piece
