Vintagy (Is that a word?) Map

Here's a new map for an upcoming issue of Adirondack Life magazine. This one was a lot of fun to do, because the Art Director wanted a sort of 1940's-vintage-linen postcard feel to the map. (Try looking those up on ebay... way to want to start collecting 'em!) This will run on a tilt across a spread, so I had to design it to keep the lettering out of the gutter– thus the blankish area toward the right. (That sneaky little gutter... always good for a challenge!)

Loved your 1940's map
and yes, we have a collection of those post cards collected by Robert's grandmother--
mostly of Florida!

Dog below looks really happy.

Thanks, Elizabeth and Julie!

Pup LOVED the water. Took her about 5 minutes to learn how to swim. :-)
