City Sculpture

Portland

If you check-in with Travel Between The Pages on a regular basis, then you are well aware of my life-long love of maps. So, it’s no surprise that I’m wowed by these amazing sculptural maps . London-born, Portland-based artist Matthew Picton creates fantastic paper sculpture maps of diverse cities  utilizing books and various textual materials relating to each city. For example, he built the Jerusalem map from Bibles and a Koran. And, the map of Dublin was created from the pages of James Joyce’s Ulysses.
