CAPE HORN ILLUSTRATION  Architecture, cities, history in ink. Based in Ravenswood, Chicago.

Home portrait. Style: Richardsonian Romanesque greystone. Based in Lincoln Park. My guess for year built: Late 1880's/early 1890's. ..

And this is 2100 N Clark. Also known as Balki and Larry's Chicago apartment from "Perfect Strangers." Also Lincoln Park, also a show mostly shot in LA. Believe it or not, someone maintains an elaborate fan page of this show, including fan fiction and a walking tour of Chicago locations.

Any fans of Family Matters around? The show was set in Chicago and this is the home, as shown in the opening credits. Based in Lincoln Park. The show, however, was shot in LA.

Thrill of the month. This is a woodcut print featuring Nuremberg and surroundings, from 1559. You can see Lauffenburg, Katie's @katie_ll namesake town, and scenes of hunts. This is available on request at the Newberry's map collection. One among a huge collection, available to experience up close and for free.

A little something for Printer's Row (June 10-11) "Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intointoxicated by the romance of the unusual." #ernesthemingway ..

Memorial Day. "From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered..."

Detail in ink, The Rookery Building. Rooks in the masonry welcome visitors. They remind them that, at one time, City Hall was here, and home to many of their kind. Rooks are closely related to the crow and raven.
