This Map Needs a Magnifying Glass

The Bangkok Post interviews artist Karoon Keamviriyasatean (aka Zillv)“To record the beauty of Rattanakosin Island, known simply as the ‘Old Town’, freelance artist Karoon Jeamviriyasatean has drawn a map. But it isn’t any normal map. It is a stunning and intricately detailed architectural birds-eye-view cityscape of Rattanakosin Island. Every block, shophouse, fort, temple and soi is depicted, and the only way to see it in full detail is through a magnifying glass.” The map is available for sale here. [WMS]
