The world of contemporary mapmaking is brought up-to-date in this revised and expanded edition of a best-selling book. For centuries we have used the tools of cartography to represent both our immediate surroundings and the world at large―and to convey them to others. In our age of satellite navigation systems and Google Maps, personal interpretations of the geography around us are becoming even more relevant. A new generation of designers, illustrators, and mapmakers have been discovering their passion for various forms of illustrative cartography and A Map of the World is a compelling collection of their work. This updated edition contains even more examples of their output, ranging from detailed representations to personal, naive, and contemporary interpretations.

Today, food is art and necessity, tradition and future, hope and concern. The preservation of our planet is closely related to how we, as its inhabitants, learn to reexamine and transform our eating habits. Almost simultaneously, food has become an extraordinarily innovative means for art and creativity. Cooks are artists, scientists, and gurus. For photographers and bloggers, fruits and vegetables are the new supermodels, and product designers have found an unlimited field of experimentation and creation. Food Futures presents a collection of design projects illustrating the possibilities that new technologies open up to designers and the way we perceive food from a design perspective. This book explores current experimentation and innovation in food design from both material and conceptual points of view. The projects selected for this edition have been realised through design, and perform inquiries into our responsibility, our relationship with food and the acts that surround it, and how social and environmental changes will transform the way we experience food in the future.

My name is Adela Silvestre, but as soon as the Instagram homepage welcomes me I’m magically transformed into The Mint Feather, a crafter who loves scrapbooking, Home Decor and product photography. There, I explore all kinds of handicrafts or fields of art. I can think of I absolutely go crazy for wood and cardboard techniques. The noise of my electric screwdriver is my white noise. Collage making is my favorite art expression and decorating my house is my personal therapy. Without a doubt, what I most enjoy is looking at random objects and thinking how I can transform them into something completely different and creative. Are you joining the party?
