Read about Mike Reagan
Mike Reagan is an incredible map artist. Although he doesnÕt consider himself a cartographer, I consider him one in the tradition of the those who reached beyond facts of geography to capture the feeling of place through maps. He has created his very distinctive maps for the Smithsonian Institute and numerous magazines, books, and advertisements.
Read about Richard Eades Harrison
One of my favorite 20th century cartographers is Richard Edes Harrison. RE Harrison created a lot of maps for publication including Fortune magazine and published books. I like Harrison because he incorporates artistry in illustrative maps that in other hands would most likely turn out as bland info-graphics.

Pinchon made some incredible pictorial maps that act as summaries of the history, culture, politics, and economies of geographical areas.
