The rise of thematic or special purpose cartography, which focuses on mapping the distribution of single or multiple interrelated phenomena, had its origins in the advances in the natural sciences in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, particularly with the collection of vast amounts of scientific data and the search for innovative techniques of presenting this data graphically. Examples of early physical geography atlases in the Library of Congress include Alexander von Humboldt’s Atlas gographique et physique du royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne (Paris, 1811), which records his observations during a 1799 to 1804 expedition to South and Central America; Heinrich Berghaus’s three-volume Physikalischer Atlas (Gotha, 1845 1848), the first atlas to portray the physical geography of the world; Alexander Keith Johnston’s Physical Atlas (Edinburgh, 1848), an English adaptation of the Berghaus atlas; and Traugott Broome’s Atlas zu Alex. v. Humboldt’s Kosmos [Stuttgart, 1851 1853], which was prepared to accompany Humboldt’s five-volume Kosmos, a complete physical geography of the universe.

The Boston Public Library’s Print Department is home to more than 350 vintage travel posters, most dating from the 1920s-1940s, the «Golden Age of Travel.»

Railways opened up America and Europe, luxe ocean liners introduced elegance into
overseas voyages, and drivers took to the road in record numbers in their new automobiles. By the mid-1940s, new airlines crisscrossed the globe, winging adventure-seekers to far-flung destinations.

Travel agents and ticket offices during this period were festooned with vivid, eye-catching posters, all designed to capture the beauty, excitement and adventure of travel and to promote a world of enticing destinations and new modes of transportation. Individual artists gained fame for their distinctive graphic styles and iconic imagery, and many posters from this era still remain important works of art long after their original advertising purposes have faded.

Las hadas de Cottingley
Serie de cinco fotografías tomadas por las primas Elsie, 16 años, y Frances Griffiths, 10 años, (Bradford, Inglaterra).
1917-18
Las niñas posan junto a varias hadas, probando la existencia de espíritus.
Gran falsificación.
Geoffrey Wakefield Crawley (1916-2010, pionero del análisis fotográfico) demostró que las fotos eran falsas muchos años después ( «Of course there are fairies, just as there is Father Christmas»).
En 1982, Elsie Wright declaró en la BBC que fue un fraude.

1000 TIME Covers: Thinking Inside the (Red) Box
Wednesday, October 27, 2010
Helen Mills Theatre
137-139 West 26th Street (between 6th & 7th Aves), NYC

Arthur Hochstein was the Design Director of Time magazine for 15 years, through the end of 2009. During his time there he designed over 1000 covers, including some of the most memorable magazine images of recent years. His iconic cover designs include everything from OJ Simpson, 9/11, the War in Iraq, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. And although the covers of Time included some of the best illustrators and photographers in the world, many of the covers were photo-illustrated by Hochstein himself, who created numerous humorous and pointed images.

Like a modern day version of classic Esquire cover designer George Lois, Hochstein wielded irony, wit, provocation, and powerful imagery to create what was, week after week, the most seen and talked about piece of print real estate in the business. Hochstein will be presenting a retrospective of his cover work at Time in a presentation hosted by the Society of Publication Designers on October 27 in New York City. «1000 Time Covers: Thinking Inside the (Red) Box» will be a unique behind the scenes look at the creation of the Time cover.

Here’s a slideshow of a dozen of our favorite Time covers designed by Arthur Hochstein over the past 15 years.

GRAPHIC GEMS: Paseando por la Luna

El paseo lunar de Amstrong y Aldrin (Apollo 11), 21 de julio de 1969.

Geniales comparaciones creadas por Thomas Schawagmeier gracias a una sugerencia de Eric M. Jones (editor del Diario de la Misión Apollo 11). Su gráfica es parte ya de la historia de la cultura visual del siglo XX.

Thomas Schwagmeier fue uno de los colaboradores para las transcripciones de la misión Apollo 11.

Aquí, nuevas versiones del gráfico, por el propio Schwagmeier.
