The Golden Age of American Pictorial Maps

 Today I am posting live from the Osher Map Library where The Golden Age of American Pictorial Maps runs through September 3rd. I planned to do a "live blog" but this exhibition has greatly exceeded my expectations. In order to do it justice, I will need to do a more thorough post when I have the time. In the meanwhile here are some highlights. Here is the Buckminster Fuller Dymaxion Projection on the side of the building
Projected Global Air Routes- link
Rio-World's most beautiful (and maybe polluted) harbor. Site of tomorrow's Olympics
On the trail of Moby Dick-link
Dystopian LA with its Pepto-Bismol Sky-link
Also, they let handle an Atlas by Joan Blaeu!
More on that and everything else later.
