Meet Lucy Engelman

The Michigan-Based Illustrator Makes Sentimental Maps

Posted by Gestalten—10/2015

Michigan-based illustrator Lucy Engelman takes a highly emotional approach to cartography that balances geographic accuracy with her subjective experiences. Her intricate maps aren’t instructional guides of where to go and what to see. Instead, they are embedded with a sense of how a place makes her feel. Meet Lucy Engelman in our latest video on Gestalten.tv and see more of her work in our recent release Mind The Map.

Mind The Map is a compelling compilation of classically legible maps, artistic experiments, editorial illustrations, and more. The book is now available at Gestalten Space, Gestalten Pavilion, and in our online store.
