Daniel Huffman is a Madison, Wisconsin-based cartographer who operates a blog called somethingaboutmaps. He recently hosted a monochrome mapping competition, dubbed Mono Carto 2019. He writes, “I love working in monochrome (and gave a talk about it at the NACIS Conference in 2018). I think color is overused, and the challenges of a limited palette can be liberating. I want to draw more attention to the great work that mapmakers are doing in this medium, and encourage more people to experience the joy of composing with only one ink.” There were over 150 entries from across the globe, and they are truly a pleasure to look at!
