Last year I did a webinar entitled “My Journey with Maps” (here is the link if you missed it). In the webinar I talked about some of my favorite maps, including the Mississippi Meander Maps that were created by the Army Corps of Engineers in the 1930s and 40s, specifically by Dr. Harold Fisk, to trace the patterns of the river over a great length of time. I am obsessive about maps, some of them literally make me swoon, and these maps fall into that category.
These are some of the most beautiful maps I have ever seen.
