Antone's Picks: The Map As Art

While Katharine Harmon's The Map As Art is an anthology consisting of every medium from photography, sculpture, painting, collage, body art, etc, etc... and although doesn't fall directly into the photography paradigm, it is certainly worth note. I added this book to my collection several months ago and continually get sucked into the visual landscape that exists on almost every page. Published by Princeton Architectural Press, The Map As Art explores concepts of visual cartography from the meaning and use of contemporary maps to more heady themes, such as explorations of the mind and issues of presence and absence.

Anyone who is interested in conceptual art, or is in search of an aesthetically pleasing sensory overload should take a look through the pages of this book. The essays provided by Gayle Clemans are of equal interest to those in search of scholarly pursuit.
