Maps — adventurers love them, explorers devise them, and everyone uses them. From the ancient clay tablets of Babylon to the modern-day wonder of Google Earth, people have been creating and using them since time immemorial to navigate their way through the world.
In the recent years, illustrated maps have been becoming increasingly popular. Embellished with creative elements such as dynamic designs, cartoonish humour, and novel perspectives, these maps provide geographic information in richer, more engaging ways.
Greener Pastures — a small travel firm based in northeast India that focuses on uplifting local communities and safeguarding the environment — has created a tiny treasure trove of seven illustrated maps that showcase the cultural highlights of the Seven Sisters. It seems only right, after all, that such a beautiful region be depicted with all manner of visual flourishes!
Here are the 7 pretty illustrations:
