FEATURED MAP COLLECTION

Maps with Big Mistakes
This month’s collection features early maps that have interesting mistakes: California depicted as an island; large missing or grossly distorted landmasses; Bold assertions of monsters or vast wastelands existing in areas of the world. The collection features maps from the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries in which well-meaning cartographers simply got it wrong.
 


FEATURED PHOTOGRAPH COLLECTION

Child Labor Photographs

This month’s collection features young children working in dangerous and dirty jobs in the early 1900’s. The collection features the work of such famous social documentary photographers as Lewis Hine, Dorothea Lange & Russell Lee. The children are pictured working in textile mills, farms, rolling cigarettes and cigars in squalid tenement buildings, selling newspapers on the street corners of American cities and working hard in coal mines.



FEATURED POSTER COLLECTION

Propaganda Posters

This month’s collection features fascinating examples of propaganda from anti-communist Spain, The former Soviet Union, Mao’s Communist regime, Al Qaeda, German Nazis and even some American examples of propaganda.



FEATURED HISTORY BOOK

John Vachon's America
From 1936 to 1943 John Vachon travelled across America as part of the Farm Security Administration's photography project, documenting the desperate world of the Great Depression and also the efforts at resistance--from stoic determination to strikes. This book, the first to feature Vachon's work, offers a stirring and elegant record of his photographic vision and of America's land and people as the country moved from the depths of the depression to mobilization for WW2.
