Literary St. Louis, The Arch Enemy

The World Series heads to Saint Louis this weekend. Not only do they have baseball and toasted ravioli but according to artist Dan Zettwoch they also have "book 'n writers 'n stuff."

His blog post details the evolution of this drawing, done for an article in the Riverfront Times. The original idea was for a pop up book.
This proved to be too difficult so he went back to 2D space and used some "vectors" (GIS data?),
added some figure drawings...
.. and finally some color to get the finished product. Click the first picture or the detail below for a larger image and explanation of the numbers.
