Gorgeous new map from Liz Bartucci, author of “Secret Lives of the Unemployed.” I’ve gotta admit: this map hits pretty close to home.

So unbelievably excited and honored to have Mapping Manhattan featured in Maria Popova’s (Brain Pickings curator extraordinaire) collection of must-reads. Popova collaborated with designer Kelli Anderson (who happens to be my favorite designer ever since I saw her Creative Mornings talk last year— I mean have you seen her paper record player?) to turn the list into a “magical papercraft wonderland” on exhibit now in the bookstore of the main branch of the NYPL. Here’s a time lapse video of the exhibit’s installation. (You can see MM’s red spine pop into the picture @ 0:44)

I had the huge honor of being a guest on BBC Radio 5 Live’s “Up All Night” program last night, talking about Mapping Manhattan. Listeners wrote in with their memories of Manhattan, and this is the map I made on the air. You can listen to the program here for the next 10 days. (My segment starts at 40:13.)

Love this map inspired by the Death Cab for Cutie song, The New Year. The dotted lines are what happens when you take the map, fold any point to meet the “home” dot, and mark the path of the crease.
