  • I love this gorgeous, spooky, wonderful map by HINT.FM, which shows the delicate tracery of wind flowing over the U.S. at any given moment. [2 of 3]
  • And these maps (and everything else drawn by Christoph Niemann) are irresistible. His new book, Abstract City (Abrams), is out now. [3 of 3]
  • Images (in order): watercolor map by Stamen; wind map by HINT.FM; maps by Christoph Niemann.
