About This Image:
I first remember hearing about the night the Stars Fell On Alabama from reading an old family letter. The stories in that letter written in the early 20th century were all second hand. But they described in great detail the reactions to the the Leonid meteor shower in 1833. The night the Stars Fell on Alabama was apparently so impressive that many believed the world was coming to an end that night. A century later that meteor shower would inspire a book, and the title of that book led to the composition of a 1934 jazz standard.
The world may not have ended when the Stars Fell On Alabama on that November night back in 1833, but those few words describing that night have become synonymous with the state. So much so for a number of years “Stars Fell On Alabama” was displayed on state license plates. And I had no question that when I sat down to do this typographic state map art for my birth-state, it would reference that near-legendary night.
Despite having spent most of my life in Georgia, Alabama has always felt like a second home. I was born there and my family history there predates Alabama’s statehood. I’m not sure I’ll ever do artwork representing each of the 50 states, but there was never any question in my mind that Alabama would be one of the ones I would do.
And that’s how this particular state map art came to be with the outline of the state and the words Stars Fell on.. engraved across the map. It has a warm rustic quality that says ‘down home’ to me!
I hope you’ll take a few moments to comment and say what attracted you to this Alabama map art? Are you from Alabama? Still live there? Do you have a long family connection with the state? Maybe this design reminds you of home? I’d love to hear it from your perspective!

It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!!
Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it…. it’s absolutely beautiful. I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris. Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. Now 80 and retired for many years , she often talks about the many people she remembers from those days, My brother and myself were all born and treated there by Dr. Fred and Dr. Tom. We thought the framed picture would be something she would get great joy from and probably stir a few memories. It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
