American Cartography

by Yuexin Huo

A book dedicated to show maps and charts of North America from 1,600 to 1,900. Selective maps of the continent, rivers, states, fortifications, and panoramas are introduced and shown.

An aged visual quality is focused to resemble the exploration era. The choices of paper as well as the binding method were all aimed to reflect the characteristics of the subject matter. Page hierarchies are also emphasized. Each chapter includes an introduction, an essay, and relevant maps.

Book, stitch binding (Coptic Stitch for covers, Double Whip Stitch for the rest.)
Size: 9" * 12", 112 pages
