Hand-drawn maps

Maps have always held a great fascination for me. I love the idea that from from a few marks on a piece of paper we can gain so much knowledge about a place.

The really interesting part is when we start to mess around with the objective representation of a scene in order to hightlight the information we're trying to impart.

There are some great hand drawn maps here showing how people have whittled away unnecessary information, stretched and squeezed scales, added error checking information, all in order to produce maps tailored to specific tasks.
