"The colorful, annotated paintings collected in Paula Scher MAPS offer a world informed by the graphic designer's poignant and incisive commentary." - Travel + Leisure
"If you are looking for good books on interior design theory, the pickings are quite slim. Lois Weinthal's massive 648-page reader redresses this with a carefully curated collection of 48 essays, with texts by Wim Wenders, Le Corbusier, Beatriz Colomina, and (my favorite) Juhani Pallasmaa. While there is an almost too heavy reliance on essays from the field of architecture (and you cant really blame Weinthal for that), she divides the book into eight chapters, pulling from many fields: fashion, philosophy, film, and art." - Paul Makovsky, Designers&Books
"This excellently produced monograph features 39 of Scher's most riveting geographical visions." --The Daily Beast
"A lavish, formidable large-format volume collecting 39 of her swirling, colorful cartographic points of view, a beeline addition to my favorite books on maps. Cherry on top: The cover jacket folds out into her legendary colorful map of the world. Artful and opinionated, MAPS is a beautiful antidote to the sterile objectivity of location-aware apps and devices...shining with Scher's own distinct, quirky, visionary voice." -- Brain Pickings
"Forget about getting from point A to point B and journey through the crazy detailed, deceptively accurate, wild imagination of Paula Scher." -- Communication Arts
