The name “Transparent city” recalls Calvino’s Invisible Cities by antithesis, we could call these maps Visible Cities to underline the way they transform a visit or the living experience of a city into something which is totally visible. 

Transparent City Maps share Palomar’s products’ original leading concept: they represent a counter-melody to the overwhelming digital technology mainstream. A resolute return to the analogue which is not “vintage”, but gives a radically new meaning to travel experience. It is our way of saying that a more human, more ironic and possibly more attractive dimension can coexist with digital map technology and its presumed imperatives.

The adhesive transparent sheets - to be considered an essential component of the project -let you write your notes, comments, personal itineraries and memories on the map. Transparent City Map holds the user’s imprint, a trace of the individual navigation of a city which turns a voyage into such a rich and diverse human experience. Transparent City Maps invite you to build relations and dialogues with places in a diary form. The material quality of these booklet-form maps – made with an almost 1 cm thick graphic solid Eskaboard – lends dignity to a personal narration of a city and the possibility of reuse and consultation through time. Transparent City is the urban geography of which you are the author.
