Descripción:

Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, map 24 3/8 x 18 5/16 inches on sheet 25 x 19 inches. Professionally conserved with paper backing, very good condition. Jo Mora is perhaps the best known and well loved of all the pictorial map makers of the early and mid twentieth century. Mora experimented with printing this map on different types of paper; a few maps were printed on this tan paper before Mora settled on the glossy white paper which is the more common paper for these 1945 maps. This lively and informative map of California has place names, mountains, railroads etc marked and named, with small cartoon-like pictures (pictographs) to indicate the main attractions eg. a movie being made with a couple embracing for Hollywood, a football player for the University of California at Berkeley, and grapes and winemaking at various locations including San Bernadino and Fresno. At the upper right where Nevada would be on the map, there are pictures depicting various aspects of California life and history - all done with a great sense of humor. The frieze starts with "California's Melting Pot" depicting the people of California from historical figures (Sir Francis Drake) to the people of modern California (ending with G.I. Joes and Football Heroes). Below that is "California Transportation Throughout the Ages" from Early Spanish Caravels to "Our state-wide highway system is a mecca for tourists." In the ocean are inset pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and S.F. Oakland Bay Bridge, and a section of 20 small images of the missions of California. N° de ref. de la librería
