Sneden's an interesting dude, and quite worthy of his own thorough write-up. I've found 300 or so maps by the guy, and they're all very, I dunno... “lyrical”? Would it be lame if I described a map as “lyrical”?
Anyway, I might optimize and post, say, 3 more Sneden maps -- but they're all worth looking at. I might just zip the rest of them and put a link somewhere. They're a treasure-trove.
