Out of the Box Saturday

One thing I've always been fascinated with are maps. I like them more for their shapes and details than the directions that they lead. I'm actually horrible with directions. Without my husband I don't think I could get from one state to the next. Once I know my area I pick the most logical route; when my husband picks a route that may take him much longer.

Do you consider maps art? 

There's a designer in New York at Pentagram named Paula Scher. She's done designs for Swatch Watch, the New York Theater Company, Citibank and more. She hand paints maps on the side. These painting are really large! It's what's left of craft for her.

All images were gotten here and here.
