Movies Turned Into Magical Maps

pop culture map header

The most memorable movies take you on an emotional journey. Artist Anthony Petrie has grabbed onto that idea and made it literal with his pop culture maps. He takes films like Jaws, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and Indiana Jones and translates some of the iconic imagery into detailed and artistic cartography. Amity Island from Jaws turns into a shark-shaped mass of land, Isla Nublar from Jurassic Park becomes a dinosaur, etc. I want to visit everywhere. Okay, maybe not Amity Island.
