Map Your Memories

For the Map Your Memories project, Becky Cooper printed hundreds of blank maps of Manhattan and walked around the island asking strangers to map "their Manhattan." These maps are compiled into a new book, Mapping Manhattan: A Love (and Sometimes Hate) Story in Maps by 75 New Yorkers

The results vary from the wordless and strictly artistic to maps full of illegible scribbles to simple numbers with separate translation pages.

Here are some examples - chosen based on personal tastes and legibility. These images are all from Cooper's tumblr page.

This one is from cartoonist and essayist Tim Kreider.
