The ART in cartography

I may fantasize daily (hourly?) about restoring a manoir in the French countryside... you know, the long drive with trees and hedges, a gorgeous stone facade, maybe a little turret or two, a pigeonnier... some fluffy sheep... a half-timbered barn that we could convert into a gîte... I could sell antiques on the side...

But really, California's hardly anything to complain about.

I've just seen Simon P. Scott's large-scale maps at Jardins en Fleur in Los Angeles and am absolutely coveting the Golden State triptych.

(It'll look great in the salle de séjour, I'm just sure of it...)
