“There has always been art in cartography. Maps by definition are utilitarian. Cartographers have long known that deploying artistic skills and techniques can enhance a map’s effect.

Artists have found in cartography a rich vein of concepts and imagery to mine.” - Katharine Harmon, The Map as Art: Contemporary Artists Explore Cartography
