Alternative maps of the world

map hero.jpg

Ah maps. While some might consider their reinterpretation as sacrilege, we can't get enough of them. Especially when they're as good as these ones.

artPause, an English artist, has created a set of alternative looks at the world map from a tube map to countries made up of cats. They might not be particularly practical, especially if you like to brag about where you've been, but they look damn good.

If you're as much of a fan as we are, then you can buy any of the prints from his Etsy store here.
