We ended up taking the summer off — which explains the lack of blog posts — and part of it was spent in China. My wife and son got to spend more time there than I did. But now that our son is back in school, I’m making an effort to post more often. In fact, our next blog entry will probably be the 1870 Johnson’s Australia and East Indies map!
If you live in the Lakewood/Cleveland, Ohio area, stop by the Lakewood Library from now (September 5th) to the end of the month. We have 20 map reprints on display up on the second floor. If you have a school-aged child, they might like to enter the children’s library scavenger hunt. Five lucky winners will win a kid-sized (13″x19″) of our 1862 Johnson’s Map of the World on Mercator’s Projection!
Here are the 20 maps we decided to exhibit (links are to existing blog posts and/or to our Etsy store’s listings):
Have fun getting lost in a map!
