Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PMMAPS is collection of Paula Scher s large-scale map paintings and chart drawings laboriously and obsesssively createdbetween 1998 and 2010. The book includes maps at all scales, in Scher s characteristic style, ranging in scope from theworld, to maps of India, the Middle East, USA, and Japan, to the local, maps of Washington, D.C., Tokyo, or New York,among many others.Scher s maps are well-known in the art world (represented by the Maya Stendhal Gallery in New York, original drawingsgo for thousands of dollars), and have been published widely, including on the New York Times op-ed page, Metropolis,Harper s and numerous on-line art sites.

Synopsis:

In the early 1990s, celebrated graphic designer Paula Scher (Make It Bigger, 2002) began painting maps of the world as she sees it. The larger her canvases grew, the more expressionistic her geographical visions became. Displaying a powerful command of image and type, Scher brilliantly transformed the surface area of our world. Paintings as tall as twelve feet depict continents, countries, and cities swirling in torrents of information and undulating with colorful layers of hand-painted boundary lines, place-names, and provocative cultural commentary. Collected here for the first time, Paula Scher MAPS presents thirty-nine of Scher's obsessively detailed, highly personal creations.
