Dr. Leah Thomas—recent PhD from VCU’s Media, Art, and Text program and assistant professor at Virginia State Univeristy (on the falls of the Appomattox)—has started a great new sub-series, British Virginia Maps! Dr. Thomas is working on an edition of a 1625 map by Henry Briggs held at the Virginia Historical Society. The amazing Joel Kovarsky is working on two other British Virginia Maps for the sub-series. And the series is open to new contributors! This could be your chance, map lover.
