Some maps need to be savored instead of analyzed; digested, not discussed. Like this delicious map of Candy County, by Minneapolis artist and printmaker Faye Passow. It's crammed with the delightful nomenclature of confectionery (from Lemonheads to Pixy Stix), rich in wordplay (Easter Egg Island, the Candy Bar) and sure to tickle the fancy of anyone with a sweet tooth. It would look great as a poster in the dentist's waiting room.
