It’s been 29 years, but the change to Melbourne’s CBD is remarkable – as evidenced by the soon-to-be-released new version of The Melbourne Map.
The original was completed in 1990 and a coloured 2019 edition is expected to be released in March.
The black and white version is available already, including larger signed limited prints.
Project founder and producer Melinda Clarke shared the uncoloured version with CBD News, and the result is incredible.
With only a handful of skyscrapers, the CBD in 1990 looked more like a village than the place we know today.
Contrast that with the metropolis that we now know as the Melbourne CBD.
Ms Clarke said: “The Melbourne Map is an independent project with considerable time and funds injected over the past four years. Along with the support of a very successful crowd funding and pre-sales, Melburnians have backed the project to ensure its completion. It is very exciting to have released the first black & white prints.”
General-release black and white prints can be found in a couple of places around town – Clementines, 7 Degraves St and Melbournalia, 50 Bourke St. For more, visit www.themelbournemap.com.au
