Medium: A Gratuitous Rundown of More Than Three Decades of Gratuitously Cartographic Advertisements in Fortune Magazine

Medium: A Gratuitous Rundown of More Than Three Decades of Gratuitously Cartographic Advertisements in Fortune Magazine. “Fortune magazine is known for its rich legacy of informative and often avant-garde explanatory graphics. From the get-go in the early 1930s, the magazine featured lush illustrated maps. Throughout the 1940s, cartographers like Richard Edes Harrison filled Fortune’s pages with beautiful maps on topics both grave and playful. This tradition continued through the 1950s and beyond.” It’s not a database or even a slide show — it’s just a long, long, LONG set of advertisements from Fortune. I found the mention at The Map Room and didn’t know where to put it. If you’re at all interested in print magazine ads you’ll like this. (Just know you’ll be scrolling for days.)
