The Cartography Collective

jasonecohen asked: Hello hello. I have a peculiar question, I suppose -- what's your view of (do you have a view of?) navigational maps, charts, and the bodies of water you find in cartography? I'm actually developing a project on this question, so I'm completely being selfish about the question at the same time that I would love to hear what you think. Alternatively, if you have favorite provocateur maps featuring water, I would delight to know. Cheers.

Bashful confession: I am blindly in love and possess an affection for maps that is almost purely aesthetic. I am not particularly, or formally, educated in cartographic studies, and so, the filter I look at navigational maps, charts, and bodies of water in them, is no different than the one I use to view the rest of maps and aspects of maps. Apologies I can’t be of more assistance!
