Just wanted to quickly share this. I can't believe I've managed to miss this site for so long but, thanks to a profile on the superb Graphic Sociology, I've finally discovered Bill Rankin's 'Radical Cartography' - a fascinating and inspirational collection of innovative map visualisation from his own portfolio and designs from a number of other contributors.
Bill is the Assistant Professor of History of Science at Yale and one of his academic interests includes "the history and politics of scientific drawing (especially maps and engineering drawings)". Some of you may not be immediately familiar with Bill's work but may recognise his dot-density mapping method which had a significant influence on last year's celebrated New York Times 2010 Census Map development (especially with the racial and ethnic concentrations view).
