Maps of Philadelphia & Maps from Philadelphia

On Sunday, September 20, 2009 the HDMA attended the Philly Zine Fest to collect maps, meet people, and giveaway our free map of Philadelphia. We collected a lot of great maps that day. Collection 3a includes maps featuring personal interpretations of the city. Collection 3b features a variety of different locations and approaches to map making. It includes fictional locations such as Subkultura, a place where Racquel lives out novels that exist only in her mind, a map detailing various miseries of life, and a picture honoring a grade school mnemonic device for remembering the cardinal locations (Never Eat Shredded Wheat).

Few people included their names so maps are anonymous. If you'd like to claim your map, send an email to
