World Map

World Map

From The Usborne Internet-Linked Children's World Atlas
This book won Silver in the Geographical Association Awards 2002.
It is an innovative title stretching the bounds of traditional certography. I worked closely with the cartographers to produce maps using bright, bold colours for the political and physical maps, this was out of the cartographer's usual realm and so I sat with them and chose the colours to be used directly as they were creating the maps. we also combined them with photographic backgrounds, for example the sea on the physical maps is a photograph of water.
