Paula Scher MAPS
New York / Paris / London: Three Mini Journals

Developed in collaboration with legendary international design firm Pentagram (designed by Luke Hayman and his team), these three pocket-sized journals are decorated with partner Paula Scher’s obsessively detailed, highly personal city maps. Tuck these lightweight journals in your bag for your next journey, or simply use them to jot notes on the go. More info here.

The Map as Art Exhibition

Inspired by the best-selling book The Map as Art, this exhibition presents artworks that explore issues of mapping—whether conceptually or quite literally—while also examining the personal gesture involved in large-scale works. The exhibition is co-curated by Kemper Museum Director and Chief Curator Barbara O’Brien and Katharine Harmon, author of The Map as Art (published by Princeton Architectural Press, 2009).
