Picturing America: The Golden Age of Pictorial Maps
This is the first book to showcase this vivid and popular genre of maps. Geographer Stephen J. Hornsby gathers together 158 delightful pictorial jewels, most drawn from the extensive collections of the Library of Congress. In the United States, cartography flourished from the 1920s through the 1970s, when thousands of innovative maps were mass-produced for use as advertisements and decorative objects—the golden age of American pictorial maps. Author: Stepen J. Hornsby. Foreword: Ralph E. Ehrenberg. Hardback, 304 pages.
