I wrote once before about Peter Gorman’s work, Barely Maps, which was inspired by a cross-country circumnavigating bike ride. I finally got a copy of the book and enjoyed it. Here’s his minimalist map of Minneapolis/Saint Paul, about which Gorman writes:
“If you zoom in a few miles south of the headwaters of the Mississippi, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul sit on either side. I played around with the border and realized when I left only the land-based ones (and deleted the river itself), that the cities actually looked conjoined.”
You can order a print of this map, or any of his other work, at Gorman’s website. They make great holiday gifts!
