A Holiday Shopping List

When I started my first map-related website back in 2010(?), it had some text on there about how I thought it would be cool to bring together map artists into one place where people could buy our products. This may have been borne out of my own failed attempts to sell a couple maps of my own (things have gotten at least a little better since then).

After this idea sat in my mind for a decade, I finally decided to do something about it. Capitalizing on the holiday shopping season in the United States, I’ve put together a list of small businesses selling map prints and other products. Check it out and spread it around (and support independent map artists)!

This is also the start, I hope, of something a little larger. I’d like to form a cooperative of independent sellers of map products. I think we are stronger if we band together. If you run a small business selling map products to consumers, feel free to drop on by The Spatial Community (thespatialcommunity.org), which is a public Slack group for, well, people who do spatial stuff. I’ve formed a channel there called #map-products-cooperative. Join the channel and we can start to organize ourselves!

    • Thanks! This is what I get for self-publishing: no one to double-check my work. I’ve updated the atlas and the sample image.
