Another recently finished unique and impressive map on Very Black wood planks that will be the center of attention wherever it is hung. Actual license plates from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and beyond make this one-of-a-kind piece take you back to a bygone era of America's love affair with the open road. Lots of unusual and rare car tags in bold colors make this a have-to-have piece. Measures 48 x 32 and comes ready to hang.
Like hundreds of maps before it in this iconic ongoing series, the official Design Turnpike aluminum nameplate emblazons the front lower right corner.
David Bowman creates handmade license plate art and maps under the name Design Turnpike. As a boy, he loved keeping track of license plates. Road trips were kept entertaining by keeping a tally list of the many diverse plates he saw on the road along the way. Family vacations to New Mexico, South Dakota, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Canada and many other destinations exposed him to the wealth of color, style and personality of each state's tag. His interest in maps, geography, cars, travel and history grew to inspire his license plate artwork. In fact, a blue Michigan plate that adorned his first vehicle in 1998 lives on in one of the pieces in his personal collection.
Working from just outside Detroit, the birthplace of the modern automobile, he continues to brainstorm and produce various new designs along with some of the classic license plate maps that gained him attention early in his crafting career.
