Astronomical readings, geological information, pictorial elements, statistics, watershed designations, relief - all of it comes together to document a space that is anything but measured and orderly. This is a land of smoking peaks and quaking coasts. It is dangerous and unpredictable and beautiful. The dragons are here, on this map, shown in profile. As if by sketching and numbering them they might be controlled.
