Beautiful. Intricate. Skillfully made. Sharp. My parents love it in their foyer. It's juxtaposed with the New Yorker cover cartoon New Yorkistan. Loveistan.

Love it.

Beyond excellent! The graphics on this San Francisco map are phenomenal and make this map very fun and intersting to look at. Gave this to my son who lives in San Francisco. He can't wait to frame it and hang it in his apartment. Love all the vibrant colors!More > < Less

When I opened the box, I smiled. The artwork is all that I hoped for and more. The colors are solid and beautiful, yet spring from the piece to fill you with a warmth and satisfaction. I can strongly recommend the Long Island work.More > < Less

I Lost My Dog - Hand Drawn Typography Maps

About I Lost My Dog

To the letter

When you think of your favorite places, you can’t help but smile. The same thing happens when you see locations near and dear to you brought to life in a one-of-a-kind way on typographic maps by graphic designer James McDonald.

In celebration of the unique landmarks and details that make different cities, boroughs, and towns special, James draws every aspect of his maps by hand right down to each individual letter—not a single typeface is used; every word is custom-designed. The result is more than a map. It’s a typographical tribute and work of art. James' background as a graffiti artist in his youth, work as a graphic designer, and his passion for travel are evident in each piece he creates.

James uses high-end paper and ink on an ink-jet plotter in order to transform his hand-drawn creations into gallery-quality giclee prints in sizes that are easy to frame and affordable enough for all to enjoy.
