A Great Day for Maps…
Let’s face it, not everyone shares my obsession with maps. So imagine my surprise when my somewhat quirky interest gets three big hits in the same weekend.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m dying to see Maps: Finding Our Place in the World when it comes to Baltimore, and this article in the Washington Post sets the stage pretty well. It’s got a slide show that includes some of the cool things from the Chicago exhibition.
And it seems that others are sharing my map excitement…Jonathon Crowe, who blogs at “The Map Room,” had this to say:
Matt Ball, at Spatial Sustains mentions the exhibition and the book that was written about the collection.
Now that we have flipped the calendar to 2008 and the exhibition seems much closer to opening, I suspect that we’ll see a lot more postings in the coming weeks on different blogs around the net related to this exhibition.
If you see a posting out there and think I should link to it, please post it in a comment and I will include as many links in my postings as I can. Of course if you have your own blog, or just love maps, leave a comment too. I’m always looking for more info and cool sites to share.
