About this book

100 world maps drawn, painted, crayoned, sewn, and knitted by children over the past decade are featured in this retrospective survey of the work of young cartographers and symbologists. Many of the images are arresting and offer a wide variety of perspective; younger children's maps are often accompanied by comforting images of childhood, such as teddy bears or birthday cakes, while older children tend to show images of poverty, disease, and warfare. Despite this scattering of painful images, the maps express the worldwide hopes of children for opportunity, economic development, friendship, and international understanding, and they have helped raise the standard for maps and atlases produced for children and young people. This is the first time the International Cartographic Association has ever allowed publication of these striking pieces of artwork.
