Way back in 1963, Jerry Gretzinger began making a map of his imaginary world. And now, almost 50 years later, the Map weaves together more than 2,000 panels, and covers more than 1,600 square feet of surface area (see photo here).
What started as a simple doodle took on an amazing life of its own. Jerry tells the rest of this story in this short video shot by Greg Whitmore.

How does this guy support himself while making this map?
An exhibit of Jerry’s Map will be on display at the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center in Vermont beginning November 1.
