Doesn't this simply make you smile? I just love this little gem. It's a vintage map from a 1950s text book. It's unusual because it depicts the topography of the state, a bit of its history, major cities, agricultural and industrial pursuits with sketches in lieu of printed words. The map is in shades of black and cream and would make a nice graphic statement if matted and framed. It would also be useful for altered art projects. I think it would be fun to frame several of these maps and display them in a group. For instance, a group might include your home state, states you've resided in, visited on vacation or a honeymoon, etc. If you don't see the states you are interested in convo me. I have them all.

Condition: Please note: The scan showing the cream colored border gives the appearance the paper has yellowed. That is not true in reality. It is true cream and not yellow. It is not a dull color, but bright. In general the maps are in great condition. The paper is not fragile and shows minimal age or wear. Considering the maps came out of a text book and it was obviously handled by kids, I'm amazed at the condition. The maps each measure about 7.5 x 10 inches and have a raw edge where they were attached to the book. This could be trimmed by the new owner or coverd by a mat.
