Keith Godard

Keith Godard painstakingly noted the roof colors, window arrangements and design of buildings along every street in several small medieval towns in France. The maps are hand-drawn, minutely detailed, subtly water-colored, annotated, lithograph-printed, and by creating a bird’s eye illusion of three dimensions, they seem to spring off the page. “I include all of the streets–most of them–and then, working with an editor and a historian, the important buildings are chosen, usually indicated with a number and a key, so you can easily find the buildings visually.” Read more about Keith’s process here.
