Map Supplemental

Saul Steinberg

I forgot one of my favorite weird maps. This cover to the New Yorker from 1976 is the view of the world from 9th Avenue in New York.

It is amazing for it's simple graphic depiction of the bubble that is New York City. Also of note...no Europe. America with its back to its neighbor across the Atlantic...hmmm

In light of the lack of Euro discussion this election cycle I feel like it is oddly appropriate.
