In 2011, the Almanac contracted Roberta Avidor to create the hand-drawn maps of the city and Downtown that were first published in the 2012 Almanac.

During the process of repeatedly traveling from The Other Twin City—to Saint Paul to paint new landmarks—Roberta fell in love with the city, and ultimately moved to Lowertown with her husband Ken, into the Union Depot lofts. Ken’s artwork of the Union Depot wraps around the cover of the 2014 Almanac, pictured below.
