Editorial Reviews

Review

"A lavish, formidable large-format volume collecting 39 of her swirling, colorful cartographic points of view, a beeline addition to my favorite books on maps. Cherry on top: The cover jacket folds out into her legendary colorful map of the world. Artful and opinionated, MAPS is a beautiful antidote to the sterile objectivity of location-aware apps and devices...shining with Scher's own distinct, quirky, visionary voice." -- Brain Pickings

"This excellently produced monograph features 39 of Scher's most riveting geographical visions." --The Daily Beast

"The colorful, annotated paintings collected in Paula Scher MAPS offer a world informed by the graphic designer's poignant and incisive commentary." - Travel + Leisure

"Forget about getting from point A to point B and journey through the crazy detailed, deceptively accurate, wild imagination of Paula Scher." -- Communication Arts

This is a beautiful coffee table book that I got for my sister a few years ago. The illustrations are fun to look at, and I would say this is a great gift idea for anyone who loves maps or funky art inspiration.

This is a beautifully produced book illustrating work from one of today's most wonderful designers. I'd definitely recommend it for anyone interested in Scher's work, or in mark-making.

Beautiful concept, gorgeous production; a wonderful book to enjoy again and again. It came in a plastic envelope which keeps it clean, but makes it hard to take out and browse through on a whim.

I love this book. I'm in graphics and love this artists translation with words. The book is a great gift for those into both design and cartography. Also, the delivery was timely.
