Stefanie Posavec "On the Map"

"However, the works that caught my eyes was that of Stefanie Posavec. Stefanie\'s maps capture something above and beyond that of the others. Rather than mapping physical geography, her maps capture regularities and patterns within a literary space. The pieces featured in On the Map focused on Kerouac\'s On the Road. The maps visually represent the rhythm and structure of Kerouac\'s literary space, creating works that are not only gorgeous from the point of view of graphic design, but also exhibit scientific rigor and precision in their formulation: meticulous scouring the surface of the text, highlighting and noting sentence length, prosody and themes, Posavec\'s approach to the text is not unlike that of a surveyor."
