Talk by pictorial cartographer Anton Thomas on his hand-drawn map of North America.
Anton Thomas began drawing a pictorial map of North America in 2014 and, four years later, it is finally finished. With thousands of features from Alaska to Panama, and hundreds of cityscapes, this colored pencil map combines art and cartographic information. The map has been featured on Nat Geo online, and is included in “All Over the Map” – a book published by National Geographic. His talk will explain his objectives and will take attendees on a tour of the continent, highlighting the New York metropolitan area.
