Illustrated Maps

Recently on pinterest I have been noticing and pinning lots of beautiful illustrated maps. I just love the creative ways that people represent different places. Obviously these are not the sort of maps that you would use to actually get around but they are a great way to see that place from different peoples perspectives - and you can usually get some great ideas of places to visit from creative types.

I have dabbled with drawing a few maps in my time as a graphic designer but they are usually more practical rather than illustrative and I would love to have a go and create some fun hand lettered maps at some point. I will add it to my long list of things to work on - but in the meantime I hope you enjoyed checking out the maps by all of the amazing illustrators above!
