Shortly after we launched Departful last year, we shared fifteen beautifully illustrated travel maps from They Draw and Travel, a website that encourages artists to create and submit maps highlighting unique spots in some of their favourite locations around the world. Since this collection has continued to grow, we wanted to give them and their artists another nod by sharing fifteen more maps that caught our attention.

You can view more in our original post, or by visiting They Draw and Travel, which currently features over 650 different maps that are available for sale with a portion of the proceeds supporting the artists.

With that, here are fifteen more creative, and beautifully illustrated, travel maps! Let us know which one is your favourite in the comment section below.
