Archival Prints:
Archival quality 24” x 30” (61cm x 77cm) prints of the exhibit maps can be purchased for inclusion in map libraries or special collections. Both paper and ink have been chosen with long-term preservation and stability in mind. Make a valuable contribution to the rich intellectual life of your institution by purchasing this collection of 100 maps, which includes a number of historically significant “firsts” in science mapping. Maps can be purchased with or without accompanying documentation like the companion Atlas books, didactic panels from the exhibit, and the semi-documentary short film Humanexus which accompanies the exhibit. MARC records are available. The maps have been archived at the United States Library of Congress (G9930 2007 .B6), New York Public Library (Map Div. 06-1420), Indiana University’s Lilly Library, Stanford University, University of Michigan’s Hatcher Library (GA 190 .P53 2006), and the American University of Beirut.
