Old Portland !

Use this deck of cards and map as a self-guided tour of the city's most beloved and historic buildings, mostly clustered in downtown. Focusing on the grand era of cast-iron and terra cotta ornamentation, these drawings celebrate the past with the hope of inspiring the present and future. I made this deck in the Fall of 2016, sketching on location at many sites that were endangered or in the process of being demolished. Many of the buildings remain standing, but some are gone forever, except in this historical document. The deck was created to compliment my exhibition of original drawings at the Architectural Heritage Center. It hasn't been a bestseller, and I overprinted much more than demand required, so this deck is on Demolition Discount.
