This birdseye map of Houston [gmap] is a bit of a mystery. No indicators of authorship anywhere. It's masterfully done, and similar enough in style to several illustrators that it makes brooking a guess tempting, but I'll decline for now.
The illustrations at the bottom collar are well done and unique. The interior view idea just wasn't the done thing, in other maps of this type, but it looks great.
