20th Century Pictorial Maps - Old Imprints at the Miami International Map Fair, HistoryMiami 2017Published on 31 Jan. 2017
Oldimprints.com will be exhibiting at the Miami International Map Fair at HistoryMiami February 4-5, 2017. This year one of the map fair events, with oldimprints participating, consists of a panel focusing on the institutional, research, and private collecting approaches to the study of twentieth century pictorial maps. It is gratifying to see the growing interest in these colorful and frequently humorous maps, especially as their ephemeral nature often belies their significance as repositories of historical and social interest.
