The Portland Chocolate Map postcard

The "chocolate map" is an Art of Geography postcard map that was created Feb 12, 2007. I had noticed that there was practically a chocolate district spanning the Pearl and Downtown, and I thought it would be fun to propose a "Chocolate district walk" whereby you can visit all of them. I went to each chocolatier and asked them which product they wanted to iconically represent them on the map. The map shows six (formerly eight) chocolate shops within a ten block radius in Portland.
