Inspiration: Artwork from Historic Maps


Jason at LaFerrera creates original works of art from historic maps that pertain to a matching state. I like the Virginia Cardinal below, but there’s a nice selection to choose from at his Etsy Store. In addition, Jason just finished a Red Crowned Crane print made from maps of Japan. All of the proceeds from this print go toward helping the tsunami/earthquake victims in Japan via the Red Cross.
