Mapaholic Alert

Jill Berry and Mary Nassar...and all other cartophile friends....Have you seen this? 

Quote from site: The True Size of Africa" is one of the 140 maps that superstar curator and Serpentine Gallery co-director Hans Ulrich Obrist has put together for the hardcover, "Mapping It Out: An Alternative Atlas of Contemporary Cartographies." A creative offshoot of the gallery's Map Marathonthat took place in 2010, the book features maps as we've never considered them before. Damien Hirst writes instructions on how to get to his house (starting with "Call first"), former RISD president John Maeda draws a "map of the future" scribbled on a Best Western notepad, Yoko Ono contributes her poem "Map Piece" from her 1964 book "Grapefruit," Matt Mullican asks the reader to consider the calendar as a map of the future, and Sir Timothy Berners-Lee creates a map of "mingling and evolution of influences in the world wide web" (which, if you're not familiar, he invented)."
