Artist's Description

The Vac loves old maps.

This series is based on the Library of Congress collection covering the American Revolutionary War era – from 1750 to 1789. The process for archival restoration goes as follows:

1) Maps are color corrected and converted to the correct RGB colorspace.
2) Maps are, where necessary, resized to RedBubble requirements.
3) The maps are cropped where necessary to remove areas of scan/photograph that didn’t include the map itself, namely scanner deck and similar.
4) Where applicable the colors are further edited – usually in cases of severe yellowing – to improve readability while keeping as much evidence of wear and tear as possible.
5) In some few cases, the maps are further edited to remove uneven edges and scanner deck colors. This occurs where an edge of a map has been folded under or there’s a curve deformation in the scan. This is not done in cases where the map has a physical hole.

For each map, an inversion is also created. Thus, each map has a positive and negative version. If you’re looking at a traditional map, you can find the color inversion of that map by searching the name of the map plus the word inversion. If you’re looking at an inverted color map, the traditional map can be found by searching for the name of the map without the word inversion.

Map titles are based on the LOC entries, and tags are name, well as region, and era based.

These maps are in the public domain from several sources, and the original raw versions are from the LOC digital archives.

All edits, color corrections, and digital work beyond the initial archival scan are done by the Vac of wetdryvac.net.

The Vac also does custom map modifications. If you’d like custom text or layout added to a map to reflect a game character, a personal location of importance, “Here there be dragons and kittens,” Or similar, the Vac is happy to make that go for you as well for a price. The price for the edits is in addition to the price you pay for the print here – the Vac prefers to use Red Bubble even in cases of direct sale.
