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) with a different writer and illustrator, whose style of language and imagery is appropriate for the theme of the map. All members of the team producing the maps are recognised for their contribution and share in the success (or failure) of the project with 50% of profits split equally between the contributors per map for a number of years. This business model is called: shared risk and shared rewards.
We look forward to growing our community of writers, illustrators and graphic designers as we develop more maps. Please take a look at our contributors here below. They were all a pleasure to work with!
