An Introduction

This blog is a space to collect documentation of the NACIS 2015 Tangible Maps Exhibit.
By way of introduction, here is an excerpt from the Cartographic Perspectives article about the exhibit: 

The Tangible Map Exhibit highlighted the importance of tangible, physical works in modern cartography and celebrated visually stunning, artistic maps created by contemporary makers. The exhibit was a part of Map Gallery at the 2015 NACIS Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which was open to the public for the first time ever. It featured over fifteen works created by more than a dozen cartographers across North America and beyond. 

Here on this blog, read the makers' statements which accompanied each piece, and stay tuned for further musings reflecting back on the event, tying in related concepts, or looking into the future of tangible maps at NACIS.
