MAINE Wooden Puzzle, Vintage Pictorial Map by Ruth Taylor
Post-Golden age prints, Great Depression Era. Art by Ruth Taylor (1900-1985(?))
Beautifully crafted work of art and cartography. An entertaining fanciful pictorial or cartoon atlas of the United States which includes a full-color map and a page of historical and geographical text on each of the 48 states plus the Territories of Alaska, Hawaii, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Philippines, plus a map of the Caribbean showing Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Panama Canal Zone as well as the rest of the Antilles. Numerous small drawings on the map of each state depict sights, people, activities, crops, animals, populated places, etc.
A word about these vintage illustrations: A product of the 1930s, it depicts stereotypical images of people that could be offensive. WAWW is a POC-Owned business and we adore Ruth Taylor's illustrations for their historical value as they reflect the times in terms of what was important or noteworthy about each area of each state be it growing corn, raising mules, crabbing, racing horses, making movies, sailing, Native Americans, national parks, quilting, romance, volcanoes, whales, rain, gold, or big trees. RTW cartographs were meant to be cartoonish.
