My interest in maps was forged using charts at sea and topos in the mountains. The first edition (1990) of my map celebrated the bicentennial of Orcas Island’s “discovery” by the Spanish in 1790. It took me a year and a half of detailed drawing, typesetting and surveying to create this map, strip the amberlith off mylar sheets and deliver to the printer.
The second edition (2010) has been updated and digitized by computer. The limited edition is saturated with ink by inkjet printing, and printed on acid free watercolor paper. The folded tourist map is printed by offset press.
