Narnia Map

Documenting my work-in-progress reproduction of Daniel Reeve’s map of Narnia.

I first saw this map on the back of a timeline of Narnia and our world. I had purchased the piece off eBay and instead of receiving a real poster, I received a laser-printed copy. I have since seen the map all over the Web, from bible covers to shadow boxes. My favorite has to be the interactive map. After beginning this piece, I have a newfound respect for the imagination, creativity, and just pure time that are put into map-making.

The good thing about doing the knotwork on the border is that I can use the same lines on the other side:
