Experimental Geography

Lordy do I love books like this: "A photo of a secret CIA prison. A map designed to help visitors reach Malibu’s notoriously inaccessible public beaches. Guidebooks to factories, prisons, and power plants in upstate New York. These are some of the more than one hundred projects represented in Experimental Geography, a groundbreaking collection of visual research and mapmaking from the past ten years."


There are a few interior shots over at the Melville House site; I'll try to post some more. (Hat tip to Time Out Chicago's always excellent book coverage.)

Buy this book from Amazon.com

The interior shots at the Melville House site are so tiny! Post some more, post some more! Good design for a good purpose.
