This Is Not an Atlas gathers more than 40 counter-cartographies from all over the world. This collection shows how maps are created and transformed as a part of political struggle, for critical research or in art and education: from indigenous territories in the Amazon to the anti-eviction movement in San Francisco; from defending commons in Mexico to mapping refugee camps with balloons in Lebanon; from slums in Nairobi to squats in Berlin; from supporting communities in the Philippines to reporting sexual harassment in Cairo.

So the way Olivia James manages to make the extremely good new Nancy comics and survive all the shit people throw at them on the internet is: a) be anonymous b) don't read the comics and pretends she is just posting them for her friends and editor https://www.gocomics.com/blog/4657/creator-olivia-jaimes-talks-about-the-reboot-of-nancy
