This is a linocut by Jess Baker

Outside of my GIS job, I am also an artist! Here’s my latest design – a huge A2 linocut piece celebrating the unspoiled beauty of Antarctica. The contour lines on the map are even geographically accurate, would you believe.

Pretty cool detail for a linocut. You could order a copy here – nice present for the map lover in your life.

Seasons greetings to all of our readers, we are going to shower you with mappy posts over the next 2 weeks to make this a MAPPY CHRISTMAS
