  1. Hi John! I found your blog when looking for ideas for a series of hand-drawn maps I’m creating for my latest book. The work you do is fascinating! I thought you might get a grin out of the Monograph, “Topographic Instructions of the United States Geological Survey” from 1918. Information about data collection, first aid, how to pack mules, ink maps, and an extensive collection of topographical symbols. Cheers! Margie


    1. oh my gosh, Margie, this document is AMAZING! thanks so much for sharing it, and for your kind words. i’m going to share this monograph on twitter. it’s so wonderful!
