The Magnificent Map of Rap Names by Pop Chart Lab

Brooklyn-based Pop Chart Lab is a collaboration between a book editor and a graphic designer whose goal is “to render all of human experience in chart form.” No big, right? Shown here, The Magnificent Map of Rap Names features 636 rap names screenprinted with gold ink on 39″x27″ black paper. It’s not a map in the cartographic sense, but it’s close enough for me.
