Behind every great country, there is a strong cheese. The Cheese Map is a tribute to the rich variety of cheese around the world.

Yep! This project is all dedicated to cheese. Crumbly, creamy, firm or soft - there are so many cheeses in the world that all have some individual character to them. The Cheese Map is a project that shows the origin of different cheeses. And there's something pretty amazing that happens when the cheese texture takes place of a country's topography.

The cheeses deserve all the pixels they can get, so I will take high quality photographs of every cheese involved in this project. The maps will be printed on matte coated, medium thick paper.

The maps you can see below may just be the beginning of this. With your support, I would love to explore more cheeses. My goal is to create a world map where all countries with a cheese tradition are represented by a cheese they produce. I can't wait to see what this will look like and I really hope to be able to produce it so that I can share it with you as well.

Thank you so much for checking out my project. The Cheese Maps are excited to meet your walls soon!
