My friends and family all know that I am extraordinarily direction-challenged. So much so that my father installed a tiny compass in my car so I would know whether I was going North, South, East, or West. This was a very poor substitute for a GPS – a fact he quickly realized after many panicked calls from me. I also never use maps since I am far too impatient to squint at tiny lines and little freeway dots. But these beautiful maps, whether or not you are direction-challenged are a fun design element for the travel inclined. Most of these artists have designed maps of a variety of famous cities, but I posted a few of my favorites.
