Renowned graphic designer and artist Paula Scher has released a new print in her Map series. China represents a subjective take on the country’s superpower status. Through the visual vibrancy of information overload in the print, Scher captures the swift transformations taking place in a country steeped with a rich cultural and historical fabric. The multi-directional, scrawled names of sites and statistics speaks to China’s complicated history, from its imperial age of dynasties and warlord conquests, to the violent tumult of its communist conversion.
