Yorkville is unnecessary anyway.

As a cartographer who lives in Toronto, I was amazed to find this and ordered one instantly! Thanks Jerrold!

Love it!

One comment: I'm a lifelong Torontonian and as long as I can remember it's always referred to it as "the Island". Never mind that there are multiple islands.

I never thought about it much until I purchased a Toronto map from 1890. At the time, there was only ONE island! Even as more landfill has been added and more islands have been created, I think "the island" is a holdover from that time.

So sad. Loved it... until I was pointed in the direction of Paula Scher's work - http://www.zpluspartners.com/zblog/uploaded_images/artwork_images_190529_182719_Paula-Scher-740398.jpg .
It's still cool, but not as much now. :(

What are you smoking Christy? Those maps aren't even similar in any way, other than the fact that they're both typography maps. I think Jenny has done an excellent job with those Ork maps.

Still very cool.

Ordered the B&W version and it arrived today.
The print quality is exceptional. Great poster at a great price.

Beware of counterfeit Ork Posters at Alternative Arts. Walked by the store tonight and saw an "Toronto Ork" poster which looks alot like the real one, but is not. It also has a spelling error.

Buyer beware!

Geeze, is it so hard to make a map of the *FULL* city of Toronto? I live in the downtown core but I'm tired of all these Toronto map makers stopping at Dufferin-Bathurst in the west, Parliament-DVP in the east, and not going north of Davenport.

Call it a map of "Old Toronto" or "Central Toronto" but please stop passing of these as "maps of Toronto".
