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. Noted author Simon Winchester (The Map That Changed the World) introduces the book.


Paula Scher, a principal of the international design consultancy Pentagram, has been at the forefront of American graphic design for three decades. Her work is represented in museums all over the world and she holds two honorary doctorates in graphic design.
