This beautiful collection of pictorial maps showcases the art form at its peak. Drawn mainly from the Library of Congress, the 158 artistically designed maps were originally produced as ads and magazine covers from 1920 to 1970. The lively images, which include Saul Steinberg's New Yorker cover "View of the World from 9th Avenue," combine cartography, text, images and cheerful colors. It's the first book to cover pictorial maps as a distinct genre of American art.
