you had me at ‘watercolor maps’…

… but I stayed for the infographics. I recently saw a really beautiful watercolor map; then I wanted to find out more about its source. Turns out, the source Stamen.com, is filled with so many amazing things. Stamen Design is a company that does Mapping and Data Visualization. It’s no secret that I am obsessed with maps and infographics– so clearly this new discovery is a great one!

Not only are these watercolor maps absolutely gorgeous… but you can even use this link to search the watercolor world map for specific places!
