The closest impact crater to designer Nicholas Weltyk's studio at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn is an unconfirmed indent a few hours upstate at a site called Panther Mountain. That crater, however, was too small to make it into Weltyk's die-cut poster series documenting the world's three largest impact craters. To create the images of sites in Mexico, Canada, and South America, Weltyk hand drew about 30 die-cut patterns, which he used to cut and layer museum board for depth. For cartography diehards, each poster has a section of footnotes with topographical and geographical details.
