All Mapped Out

At first glance, this might look like a crafter’s freehand stitch-up of the EU. But look again – it’s actually a marine traffic map, depicting the shipping hotspots of northern Europe – rather apt, as we approach a new year, to view the familiar in such a different guise.

The brains behind this and many other unique glimpses of the world not-as-we-know-it, ITO World (who supply state-of-the-art traffic maps to industry), have recently launched an online galleryselling some of their most aesthetically delightful maps, such as the London bus network (above) by day,

…plus open streetmaps from their Year of Edits series, including Moscow and Berlin (above).
