As part of an ongoing exploration of early-twentieth-century map styles, here's a piece I finished last month. Any and all comments welcome!

It looks good, was it done using Flash?


"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

That is really impressive!  I've never seen a "new old map" this convincing, even the typography.

 

It raises interesting questions about anachronistic names.  I guess very few of those Antarctic features were even known, much less named, in 1920.  And what size did you show the Aral Sea?  As it is now, or as it was then?

Jacques: not sure the final size; probably multiple options.

 

Dennis: I just used the Natural Earth data more or less as is (a few edits for names, but really just a handful). The idea was to use current geographic information in an antique style.

 

Thanks!

Excellent work! I agree with Dennis about this being a very convincing example of a "new old map", even though I've tried to do a few myself.

Very cool Nat.  Well done!

 

My favorite spot is the West Indies.  I think you did a marvelous job 'setting the type' in that location.

Nope, Illustrator CS6 with MaPublisher and Geographic imager (the bathymetry is Natural Earth vectors, the land relief is SRTM in Photoshop).

James, a few question on Central and South America:

1) On the west coast says "Chilo Island" should be entered "Chiloé Island." Says "Isla Juan Fernandez" corresponds "Juan Fernández Island."

2) On the east coast says "Peninsula Valdes" corresponds "Península Valdes."

3) East of Paraná River says "Entre Rios" corresponds "Mesopotamia".

4) In the Gulf of Mexico says "Baha de Campeche" corresponds "Bahía de Campeche".

5) In Caribbean sea says "Istmo de Panama" coerresponde "Istmo de Panamá".

6) There are abbreviations that have no endpoint, as Pen, I, Is, R, etc.

Apologies if I'm late. Good luck.

Obviously, Non-ASCII characters are lost in your output.  I'm also missing the "ø" in "Kjølen mountains", the mountains range that separates Norway and Sweden.

The name is not frequently used these days however...

Hy James, just as several non-ASCII characters were present (Edgeøya, Fåroyar, Panamá, Valdés, etc.) I assumed that the problem could be somewhere else. In other words, the non-ASCII characters should be all or none.

Thanks for those fixes. I will make them shortly... It was a problem of non-ASCIIs falling off, and I caught a bunch of them but apparently not all...
