Two maps two-fer

Today's two-fer involves 2 beautiful "hand-drawn" maps (the second one was done on a computer, sure, but involved so much intricate detailed work that it's legitimate to call it hand-drawn).

The first is from designer Paula Scher and is a book full of her beautifully rendered maps that are purposefully careless-to-accuracy. Below is a sample and here is a link to an article and slideshow explaining them:

The second is the map that got the “Best of Show” award at the annual competition of the Cartography and Geographic Information Society. Made by one David Imus in Eugene. Looks like interest in the thing crashed his server. Article about it and an image of it below:
