We hope this doesn't happen to anyone!
|It is the time of year when feasting is on many Americans' minds, and we are no exception! But for now, let us all enjoy a feast for the eyes with some funny, interesting, and historical prints and maps that celebrate this season and one of the country's favorite holidays: Thanksgiving! The print above was published in Harper's Weekly after Thanksgiving and takes a humorous spin on the festivities. Click the photo to see more about it.|
No Thanksgiving would be complete if we didn't mention Pilgrims! This favorite map shows the approach of the Mayflower before it first landed in Plymouth. It is based on the ship's logs and includes precise times and directions- a real treat for history buffs!
We hope you will enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
|Celebrating Autumn Colors, and the plants that make the season so lovely|
Autumn is a time of brilliant colors here in New England. It is spectacular to drive or hike through tunnels of reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and greens. So we would like to salute the trees and plants that make our world so beautiful in the fall. The map above shows the distribution of plants throughout the world in a way that is both interesting and lovely.
Who can resist a fresh apple at this time of year? We have a few of these brilliant apple prints and the color is just stunning. The apples look fresh and ready to eat! That's one way to remember to have an apple a day!
This new pictorial map celebrates the wonderful trees in the US! We love the bright colors and the well rendered illustrations.
'Staches of Antiquity
|You have probably heard of Movember, or perhaps you have only noticed that mustaches are more common this month, but this is the time of year that men raise awareness of men's health issues by sporting a 'stache. But the folks who started the movement weren't the first to grow interesting facial hair! Check out some of our more hairy prints below!|
From the Movember website: "We’re the charity tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention." You can read more about how the Movember Foundation supports men's health on their website: https://us.movember.com/
