Dominique Taléghani is a French scientific journalist by day, a designer of imaginary cartographies by night. On his or her (Dominique is one of those unisex first names) blog, several examples are listed, among which is this one, Territoires occupés

Dominique mailed me to explain his/her fascination with maps – a fascination that most mapophiles understand, if not share:

« I’ve always loved maps of all sorts, for their inherent beauty but also as a starting point for intense daydreaming – I remember a map of the Yukon that I scoured for its smallest details for hours on end. »

Some of Dominique’s imaginary cartographies can be found on his/her blog, aptly titled Cartomane.
