Panoramic maps of Los Angeles
August 24, 2011 1:03 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to find samples or collections of Los Angeles "panoramic" or promotional maps. Not birds eye view maps, but one's that tend to be from an angle, often with exaggerated features.

I've seen these elsewhere sold to tourists, usually with cartoonish figures and humorous commentary inserted, with landmarks, as well as the buildings owned by the sponsors, greatly enlargened.

I don't think this is quite what you're after, but I came across an old version of something like this the other day. Kinda cool! http://www.periodpaper.com/index.php/subject-advertising-art/travel-leisure-ads/1937-ad-southern-california-1908-film-movie-industry

Very cool, and thanks - that's exactly the sort of thing I'm after! (just want more examples).
