The Pictorial Maps of Frank M. Antoncich

For those interested in Pictorial Maps, we offer a short essay on Minnesota mapmaker Frank M. Antoncich.  "It is hoped this essay will provide useful documentation regarding a number of Frank Antoncich’s creative efforts, as well as prove helpful in establishing a more secure niche for him among the galaxy of pictorial cartographers of the 1930s and beyond."

Story Map of the United States of America - Colortext Publications
