Upper Left Cities goes into uncharted territory to create a narrative about three great cities through informative and detailed infographic maps, exploring and comparing wildlife and city trails, voting records, commutes, marathon routes, food and drink patterns, and more. The result is a perfect blend of form and function, with each map meticulously and ingeniously designed.
