It is little surprise that in an era of globalized politics, culture, and ecology contemporary artists are drawn to maps to express their visions. Using paint, salt, souvenir tea towels, or their own bodies, map artists explore a world free of geographical constraints.

In »The Map as Art«, Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artists-such as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, William Kentridge, and Vik Muniz––and many more less––familiar artists for whom maps are the inspiration for creating art.

Essays by Gayle Clemans bring an in-depth look into the artists' maps of Joyce Kozloff, Landon Mackenzie, Ingrid Calame, Guillermo Kuitca, and Maya Lin. Together, the beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this anessential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.

As seen in O: The Oprah Magazine, the New York Times Book Review, USA Today, Cool Hunting, and countless other media outlets, »The Map as Art« is available now in a paperback edition. This volume by Katharine Harmon, author of the best-selling book "You Are Here", extends that book's celebration of mapmaking to the world of artists' maps.
