It’s difficult not to fall in love with these hand drawn maps of some of Asia’s most enigmatic cities. Each map is more like a poetic ode to an old neighbourhood than a navigational tool. Illustrated by local designers, the maps have a personal touch that provides insight into the spirit of the city. Better still, these little pieces of art come with a savvy app, so you can wander around just like a local.
