The Osher Map Library opened a new exhibit last week: The Art of the Hand-drawn Map. They have a fantastic collection of hand-drawn maps and globes. Big globes, tiny globes, and my favorite—a globe that opens to reveal an inkwell. Fabulous!
At the opening there were lots of interesting souvenirs and books available for purchase. I grabbed a copy of Map Art Lab by Jill K. Berry and Linden McNeilly.
Maps can be as detailed or simple as you like. Here's my apple picking map. Saturday we went for a long drive meandering until we found an orchard. In the collage I used a scrap of paste paper, a cancelled stamp, hand-lettering, and machine stitching.
Do you collect or make maps?
