From the beginning of time, we’ve sought ways to categorise and catalogue the world around us, through maps and other geographic drawings. Now in today’s modern and globalised world, we can focus our attention not only on simple cartography but rather in the development of the map as an essential symbol of design.
The new book Geo Graphic celebrates geography and maps in all their creative uses and applications, featuring a wide array of design projects inspired by geographic elements. Using both traditional map imagery and creative new illustrations or interpretations of geography, these projects include everything from product packaging to furniture, all exploring a graphic representation of the geography that surrounds us.

A plastic cup, an egg, a coin, a pencil. These are objects that pass through our hands everyday; we consider them to be simply tools for our everyday needs. It wouldn’t occur to us to try and use these objects for more artistic purposes, yet this book features artists who have done exactly that.
This collection attempts to compile a group of art and design projects of various types that show an effective, innovative use of colour, showing the meaningful effect it can have when employed with care.
This book explores the rise of this phenomenon, and gives a look at the design side of cycling – in the bicycles themselves, and in related products and cycling-inspired materials.
