The Atlas of True Names

The last time we unfurled a map, we were in the passenger seat of some van ready to embark on an epic road trip. While the convenience of a fold-able map may be history, the of beauty of many of them remains. The Atlas of True Names easily falls in the #mapporn category that we are oddly obsessed with. By swapping out the names of the places featured with the original meanings of the them, you get a map that is both informative and fun. Now when your friend arrives from Chicago, you can say, “So, how was your flight from the Land of Those Who Speak?” . . . and sound like a pompous asshole.
