The maps you see in this book were submitted to They Draw & Travel in a call for content in Fall 2020. We challenged artists around the world to illustrate a map from somewhere in outer space—actual, factual, fictional, or pure fantasy! While nearly 200 maps were submitted—see them all here—we only had room to print 100 of them in this book. These maps represent an intergalactic sample of the out-of-this-world creativity of dozens and dozens of artists.
Some artists chose to illustrate our solar system, while others depicted the constellations. Some maps tell a story of space travel, others provide futuristic fantastic itineraries, a few share insightful histories, a couple teach us factoids amongst asteroids, and they all celebrate the beauty of the universe.
