Abstract City Maps

HERO1.jpg

It's an intriguing aspect of the growth of cities around the world that, while they all share many characteristics, they are all unique.

And this is beautifully highlighted by graphic designer Jazzberry Blue, who has created these fantastic abstract city maps. Purely from looking at their street structure in its most basic form, six different cities can be clearly identified; from the organised block system of New York, to the chaotic 'mess' that is London.

Four other cities - Milan, New Delhi, Paris and Jerusalem - have also been depicted. Giclée prints are available from Etsy.
