If you already know your way around Pentagram partner Paula Scher’s portfolio then you’ll need no introduction to her fantastic series of maps. If not, then let us point you in the direction of Princeton Architectural Press and their latest release celebrating the 39 paintings, drawings, prints and environmental installations as well as an introductionary essay by Scher about the influence of her father, a photogrammetic engineer who worked on aerial photography for the U.S. Geological Service in the 1950s and taught her that maps were never totally accurate. How very apt.
