Hey all,
I came across this today and thought it was unbelievably neat. There is a larger res version I found, but it isn't very clear. if anyone has a better copy, or knows of any artists that produce similar work, speak up.
I wasn't able to figure out what the scale was. Any ideas? Also, what do you think the medium is?

Yeah. I guess Leo could've been a member here. Pretty cool, and not so far from the style of a few of our members. I do wish it was a 1:1 scan, though, so you could see the detail. Do you know the provenance of this map? Is it in a museum or a private collection? I really dig his city icons and would love to see those guys close up. Think the numbers are altitude?

As to medium? No real idea. I'd guess parchment and ink?

Oh, nice find. Saved in my inspirational folder...and repped.
