Paris ephemera — road maps / 2014

Some lovely fold-out road maps, found at the same market as the beer mats. The ‘BPortugal’ example dates from 1959; the Travel USA one from 1964. Both designer(s) unknown.

The yellow on the Portugal map must be printed in a special – it’s almost fluorescent – unfortunately the camera hasn’t captured its true vibrancy!
