Map of the Cherson–2nd State


RT predicts that people will find him dead at his computer, in the midst of finishing some epic poem and its attendant map. Here is the latest update of his map of the Cherson, the world that his novel about centaurs takes place in. This might be the great escape from Gilgamesh, except that RT is finding out that, even with Inkscape, map-making requires the artistic skills of a miniaturist and the organizational ability of a chief librarian. Data, schmata, those medieval scholars knew a thing or two…

A map must not only convey information, it must invite the viewer into its world; every map must explain itself. And to do that, it must explain its creator–no easy task. There is more to come before this project is finished…   RT
