I designed this coffee mug myself, with an old illustrated map of Charleston from the Library of Congress

I’m known as a photographer, not a designer, but I did indeed design these coffee mugs, using antique maps of my three favorite cities from the LOC.

I love Charleston . . . a lot. I don’t live there, but it’s one of my favorite cities to visit and to photograph. When I discovered this amazing illustrated bird’s eye view of Charleston circa 1872, I wanted to use it in some way to combine my love of travel, my love of coffee, and my love of Charleston.
