Lake George, New York

It’s been a little while since I posted — I got caught up in new maps this season! And what a season it’s turning out to be…

This Lake George map was finished just after I got to New York (seems so long ago already). It’s a complex elevated map that was letterpressed by the Aerialist Press along with the rest of the couple’s suite. To begin this map the wedding planner sent me a few images to give me an idea of styling, and that’s when I first learned about Jacques Liozu from iDIY blog. Check out his maps, they’re amazing and inspired me to include a border similar to a traditional map (with longitude and latitude marked) along with the map scale on the bottom left.

This wedding map was completed quite a while ago, though I hadn’t posted it because it was going to be letterpressed by a wonderful invitation designer, Card Girl. I was just getting ready to blog this map after I received a few of the pressed maps from Card Girl when I got an email from the bride including photos of the wedding! I was so excited I immediately asked if I could share some of the beautiful photos on my blog and the bride happily agreed.

This map was something of a collaboration between myself and Card Girl who inserted the beautiful calligraphy and text.

Enjoy!
