The Map as Art
Princeton Architectural Press
Katharine Harmon's The
Map as Art
is a collection of visionary topographies and imaginary geographies charted by
artists including Vik Muniz, a Brazilian who re-creates the globe from pieces
of junk; Kim Jones, an American who draws obsessively detailed battle diagrams;
and the amazing Congolese painter Chéri Samba, who populates his dreamscape
with figures from the all-too-real spheres of politics and finance.
