SEVERAL months ago, I was approached by Gestalten to be a potential contributor to their planned book on maps. They had discovered Livi Gosling's beautiful illustrations of our food walks and were keen to learn more about the project. Today, I have heard that our project with Livi's illustrations will appear in Mind the Map: Graphic Design & Illustration to be released in late September 2015. This is incredibly exciting news for London Food Essentials and Livi. I include the details below and will publish our specific pages very soon.
Mind the Map: illustrated Maps and Cartography
Maps speak a universal language and make the world accessible. A follow-up to our best-selling publication A Map of the World, this book features the cutting-edge of creative contemporary cartography.
Whether sketched on a napkin or generated from complex data, maps are a fascinating expression of contemporary visual culture. Their styles may range from simple to intricate and restrained to vivid, but all maps unlock the world and make it more accessible. In our age of omnipresent satellite navigation systems, personal interpretations of our surroundings are gaining in importance. Today, the craftsmanship of cartographers and the distinct visuals of map illustrators are increasingly valued by both professional designers and a growing community of those passionate about maps.
