OUR NEXT FAIR: THE MIAMI INTERNATIONAL MAP FAIR February 5-7 2016 at HistoryMiami, Miami Florida
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."
Here at oldimprints.com one of our special interests is the revival of decorative mapmaking in the twentieth century. It's surprising and frustrating how difficult it is to find information on the artists and publishers of these wonderful graphics. So we're asking for leads to pursue in gathering information on a Chicago depression-era firm that issued a number of engaging and, at times, astonishing, pictorial maps, Colortext Publications. Read here a short article on what owner and researcher Craig Clinton has learned to date.
