In The Map as Art, Katherine Harmon collects 360 colorful, map-related artistic visions by well-known artists — such as Ed Ruscha, Julian Schnabel, Olafur Eliasson, Maira Kalman, William Kentridge, and Vik Muniz — and many 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, Emma Johnson and Maya Lin. Together, beautiful reproductions and telling commentary make this an essential volume for anyone open to exploring new paths.
