The Art Assignment #4: Never Seen, Never Will
A paper town.
I know they “exist”. But I’ve never seen one. And I wouldn’t know one even if I did see it. Paper towns are fake locations placed on maps by cartographers as a form of copyright protection. If the fake town appears on any other maps, the original map maker will know their work was copied.
Of course most of us know this because of John Green’s book Paper Towns, which was just optioned by Fox last week to be made into a film starring Nat Wolff. But I still think it’s a really cool concept and wanted to spend some time with it in this week’s Art Assignment.
