American artist and prizewinning graphic designer Paula Scher is a longstanding partner of the international design consultancy Pentagram. Her maps belie a different side to her creative talents. Dense, colourful and displaying a wealth of wordy detail, they conjure up a powerful sense of place that manages to suggest both popular opinion and personal significance. Scher’s hand-pulled screenprints are beautiful renditions of her original painted maps, made in collaboration with Andy Warhol’s master printer Alexander Heinrici.
