Australian designer Cameron Booth has designed a map of the United States Highway system as if it were a public transportation subway map. What a brilliant piece of graphic design. You can pick it up for just $39. (via laughing squid)

For the past year artist Jenny Odell (previously) has worked in the medium of Google Maps imagery to create stunning prints of cut-out ships, sports stadiums, advertising billboards, swimming pools and other meticulously assembled collections of satellite imagery minutiae. Lately she’s focused on people, specifically locations around San Francisco where they congregate en masse, their ant-like figures filling beaches and public parks. Odell erases all other details of the photos leaving behind only the human footprint. Head on over to her blog to see the images in better detail. (thnx, megan!)

UK-based artist Susan Stockwell recently completed this gigantic world map made from recycled computer components for the University of Bedfordshire. Entitled World, the piece has been in progress since 2010 and uses motherboards, electrical wiring, fans, and myriad other components donated by Secure IT Recycling. Although Stockwell has worked with electronic components for additional projects, her work with paper is also extraordinary and has been making the rounds quite a bit.

Brooklyn-based artist and architect Olalekan Jeyifous has some great prints in his shop, my favorite above. Wish he made these of a few more cities.

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)
