Spice Trade Maps

I designed these maps for the book, Cumin, Camels, and Caravans: A Spice Odyssey, by Gary Paul Nabhan, published by the University of California Press in 2013. The challenge was to make an extremely complex history of trade routes simple to read, with an overlay of icons symbolizing the sources for these valuable spices.

As usual, you may click the images to enlarge them.
