James Turner’s Map of Humanity

James Turner's Map of Humanity

Way back in the early days of this blog, I linked to portions of James Turner’s Map of Humanity, where feelings, beliefs and aspirations are places on an imaginary map. He was kind enough to write back to explain his purpose in creating the map, and mentioned that he was trying to get it published. The map is so good — it’s a dead ringer for a map from a real world atlas — that it’s hard to believe that it wasn’t.

Flash forward four years, and Joey de Villa — the Accordion Guy — has a blog entry about Turner’s map, replete with more detail images and a large, 1.2-megabyte version of the complete map. And the map is now available for sale, printed on a large-format printer — $30 for a 24×36-inch version.
