Maps are brilliant, but wouldn’t it be nice to get one that’s personal to you?
That’s the idea behind J.Peters Fine Mapping Co. Joshua Peters founded the company to offer bespoke, hand-drawn maps to people. Above you can see his relatively minimalist hand-drawn map of London and below you can see his map of Edinburgh along with close-ups of his London map.
Joshua’s mapping philosophy is as follows:
Every map ever drawn is an expression of someone’s perception of the world, and just like each person is different, each map is different, and shows us a glimpse of someone else’s life. That unique quality is the reason I’m so drawn to maps, because no two people would ever draw the same thing.
That’s how I approach each project, and the opportunity to create something so unique and so personal really inspires me to do my best work. I’ve always believed in precision, in quality, in hard work, and in all the little details that come together to make something really beautiful.
The maps may look simple but a lot of hard work goes into each one. You can follow his work in progress on his Facebook page.
Custom maps can be ordered from as little as CDN$100, (about USD$80, £52, €74). You can learn more on the J.Peters Fine Mapping Co. website.
