Mapping America: Exploring the Continent
Frank Jacobs and Fritz Kessler
Mapping America: Exploring the Continent is a beautifully illustrated survey of America’s cartographic landscape, featuring an array of maps that document its development, from early engravings, to the latest satellite technology.
Featuring four centuries of maps that depict the changing landscape of North America, Mapping America charts the continent through numerous landmark events and uprisings, including the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement, and more recent concerns, such as the environment and terrorism. From early maps depicting the country’s colonial beginnings through contemporary maps of America today, the book presents the reader with a multi-faceted view of the North American physical and cultural landscape. Mapping America features maps showing the electoral routes of Presidential campaigns, census maps displaying the diminishing native communities and other fascinating depictions of contemporary America.
