Introducing Map Glyphs
Map Glyphs was created to be the ultimate CSS map font for both designers and developers alike. It has over 300 map icons countries, globes, continents and states.
As someone who has traveled the world, maps hold a special place in my life. From pouring over almanacs as a kid and imagining the places I read about to actually traveling to every continent (and living on a few; London, Auckland and Tucson), maps have always helped me dream where I might explore next and remember all the amazing places I have already been.
If you've ever wanted to travel, I have one bit of advice. Go! You never know where it will take you or whom you'll meet! You'll come back a better person for having done so.
Cheers to Edward Boatman of the Noun Project, Jory Raphael of Symbolicons (Thanks for the icons on the homepage!) for their advice early on and to Bruce Livingston of Stocksy who helped me get this whole idea rolling all those years ago in NZ.
