Map: Detroit: Industrial Ruins, Temples of Commerce

Not all maps need to be data-driven and information dense. Some can document personal and emotional journeys experienced from a certain perspective. Donna David’s map illustrates all these points beautifully. To describe the artistic and creative process behind this map, the creator herself has written the following description.”
