This ready to hang, matted framed art piece features a colorful watercolor skyline of Washington D.C. Art and design were always Michael’s favorite subjects at school. He was fortunate to land a job as a graphic designer at one of London’s most prestigious publishing companies after leaving University. After 12 highly enjoyable years Michael Tompsett made the decision to pursue a full-time career creating his own work. The freedom and time to be able to focus solely on his own projects has been a wonderful experience. Although Michael likes to experiment with different styles and subjects, his main focus is on map art. He enjoys looking for unique and interesting ways to depict something which is very familiar. Maps are visual representations of the world we live in, a world which is incredibly diverse. Apart from maps, Michael Tompsett creates urban landmark and cityscape designs.

Takoma Park (Images of America)


(as of Feb 21,2019 20:05:11 UTC – Details)

The story of Takoma Park begins in 1883 when B. F. Gilbert purchased 90 acres of hilly woodlands straddling the District of Columbia-Maryland border and laid out Washington�s first railroad suburb, ideally situated for the families of federal workers. Envisioning a healthful and forward-looking community, Gilbert also arranged for leaders of the health-minded Seventh-day Adventist Church to move to Takoma Park. By the early 20th century, the town was well established, and residents were creating traditions to pass on to those who followed, including an Independence Day celebration that is one of the oldest in the state. Community activism has been a hallmark of Takoma Park since a 1965 plan to build a freeway through the heart of the town. This sparked a citizen-led protest that stopped construction and led to the creation of historic districts on both sides of the D.C.-Maryland boundary line. The city�s reputation as a feisty and culturally diverse community continues to be a source of pride, attracting artists, activists, and new residents from countries around the world.

A History of Rock Creek Park: Wilderness & Washington, D.C. (Landmarks)


(as of Feb 21,2019 11:58:33 UTC – Details)

Washington, D.C.’s Rock Creek Park stands as a wild and wonderful natural gem among a burgeoning metropolis. But while local residents flock to its trails and roads on weekends to hike, jog and bicycle, they are largely unaware of its diverse history. The park’s grounds were the site of the bloody Civil War Battle of Fort Stevens, and presidents like Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson exercised and picnicked in the park the same way many visitors do today. From the cabin of eccentric poet Joaquin Miller to the oldest house in Washington today, the many stories and legends surrounding the park are sure to entertain and inform. Join National Park ranger, author and historian Scott Einberger as he traces the human, natural and urban history of Rock Creek Park, the largest park in the nation’s capital.

On Her Trail: My Mother, Nancy Dickerson, TV News’


(as of Feb 21,2019 10:27:05 UTC – Details)

Before Barbara Walters, before Katie Couric, there was Nancy Dickerson. The first female member of the Washington TV news corps, Nancy was the only woman covering many of the most iconic events of the sixties. She was the first reporter to speak to President Kennedy after his inauguration and she was on the Mall with Martin Luther King Jr. during the march on Washington; she had dinner with LBJ the night after Kennedy was assassinated and got late-night calls from President Nixon. Ambitious, beautiful and smart, she dated senators and congressmen and got advice and accolades from Edward R. Murrow. She was one of President Johnson’s favorite reporters, and he often greeted her on-camera with a familiar “Hello, Nancy.” In the ’60s Nancy and her husband Wyatt Dickerson were Washington’s golden couple, and the capital’s power brokers coveted invitations to swank dinners at their estate on the Potomac.

Growing up in the shadow of Nancy’s fame, John Dickerson rarely saw his mother. This frank memoir — part remembrance, part discovery — describes a freewheeling childhood in which Nancy Dickerson was rarely around unless John was in trouble or she was throwing a party for the president and John was instructed to check the coats. By the time John was old enough to know what the news was, his mother was no longer in the national spotlight and he didn’t see why she should be. He thought she was a liar and a phony. When he was fourteen, his parents divorced, and he moved in with his father.

As an adult, John found himself in Washington, a reporter covering her old beat. A long-delayed connection between mother and son began, only to be cut short by Nancy’s death in 1997. In her journals, letters and yellowed newspaper clippings, John discovered the woman he never knew — an icon in television history whose achievement was the result of her relentless determination to reinvent herself and excel. On Her Trail is a fascinating picture of the early days of television and of Washington society at its most high powered, and charts a son’s honest and wry search for the mother he came to admire and love.
