These are map endpapers I painted in watercolor and ink for David's Sling: A History of Democracy in Ten Works of Art. Please note: For the book, I added type in Photoshop on top of the maps so it would perfectly correspond with the interior layout. Afterwards the book went to press, I drew in the place names to finish the maps as stand-alone pieces for the author.
