Below are the “slides” used in my presentation for the New York Map Society. Culled from the last four years of entries on this website, the selected maps show the range of my cartographic endeavors. What is missing, however, is my explanation of why I chose each slide.
The presentation was was supposed to go for about 45 minutes and have about 15 minutes of Q&A, instead it went for about 75 minutes and had about 15 minutes of Q&A. In all, I felt it was a very successful presentation and I deeply grateful for the New York Map Society for inviting me and the wonderful staff at the New York Public Library for their assistance.

Ordered Today: A New & Arabesque Map of the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden

Today I finally got around to ordering this unique map. I’ve been wanting to get it printed for a couple months but I could not decide on how I wanted it to be printed, matted, and framed. Specifically, I had the most trouble choosing which mat to use because I wanted the color to slightly match the map and since the map is partially black & white, I decided on a grey hued mat. When it arrives in a couple weeks I’ll know if my choice was decent or not. Regardless, I am happy that my other antique map now has a companion.
