I just heard about this, from an announcement on the GeoWanking mailing list - maybe of interest? I have to confess that I am not familiar with any of the contributor names, but then I am not totally uptodate on stuff... I have a feeling that this is coming more from the design/architecture/activitist field, rather than from the core of cartography/geography (not saying that that is bad, though!). I would want to peek at the output more, to see what it looks like!

An Atlas of Radical Cartography pairs artists, architects, designers, and collectives with writers to explore the map's role as political agent. These 10 mapping projects and critical essays take on social and political issues from globalization to garbage. An Atlas of Radical Cartography will be an important addition to the tremendous cultural momentum that links art, design, geography and activism through maps.

'from globalization to garbage' <_<

Well its worth a peek. Most of the topics are quite well covered by other means (LA water 'ecology', etc.) so would like to see what new info or slant they bring forth.

Art & maps also mix it up (to what effect) here.
