I love maps that aren't overtly made as decoration but check all the boxes my mind asks of decoration. Like this one. It's a for-internal-use colour-coded aerial photograph where an engineer circa 1952 (R. H. Clark) plotted the "probable" extent of three historic Manitoba floods. The collision of anthropocene grids and nature's flood plains brings it to a whole other place. This is both reference material and a treat for the eyes.
