    Man, is it hard to fit pieces together sometimes or what! This will do, though, I think.

    Onto the labelling ... and squeezing my two England thumbs back in somewhere, too.

    Thnx all!

    This map is not "finished" in the sense that there will be additions and revisions -- it's for a collab writing project that's very much still in the development stages. I'll keep posting here as things move along.

    But anyway, this version is "complete and finished" for purposes of the challenge.

    This map contains one of the strongest abstract patterns I’ve seen, elevating it from simple cartography to art.

    By changing the shapes, sizes, interior colors, and border solidity of the rectangular forms, you’ve made the boxes echo each other without ever becoming repetitive. This echo creates a visual cadence that sweeps my eyes around the picture plane, delighting at the variety. Each boxed map feels like a new treasure chest I get to explore. The strong linear element of the river in the main map ties up the composition. I ride along the river and its tributary, which carries me back to the vignettes repeatedly. The timeline the vignettes present flows naturally, right to left, then top to bottom, but simultaneously unexpectedly in their rhythm, punctuated by the title, the heraldic device, and the nifty country map and pull-out. This thoughtful, logical, and yet quirky flow engages me more in the maps' content – the changes to the village over time – than I would have been if you’d just lined the era boxes up in a row or stacked 'em up in a column. Composition serves content.

    And I need not comment on the exceptional skill used to execute the image’s myriad details. But I can’t help but compliment the visual wonder the image as a whole inspires through its unexpected placement of elements. If this weren’t a map, if it were just colors and shapes and values stripped of narrative content, I’d still be enthralled.

    That's .... extremely flattering, man. Thank you!

    If this weren't posted in my thread, I'd wonder whose work you were talking about :p
    All I see is the flaws :\
