Mapology Guides wouldn't exist without the talent, creativity and generosity of our contributors.
Each Mapology Guide is curated and art directed by Tina Bernstein (and in the past Mike Abrahams) together with a writer and illustrator, whose style of language and imagery is appropriate for the theme of the map.
We look forward to growing our community of writers, illustrators and graphic designers as we develop more guides. Please take a look at our contributors here below. They were all a pleasure to work with!
