This map was atypical because of the angle. Instead of a top-down, topographical style of map the client had commissioned a cartographer to make a 3/4 degree map of the mountains in Summit County, CO. It was an interesting challenge translating that onto the leather but once the design was there it was just a matter of making sure every line got cut with the right pressure. I used some blending and shading to bring the mountains out a bit more while I was staining. The pictures came out well but it looks even better in person!
