Mapping Manifest Destiny

Mapping Manifest Destiny: Chicago and the American West was a premier exhibit at Chicago’s historic Newberry Library — an independent humanities research library that’s home to an enormous collection of rare books, manuscripts, and maps. I helped design an exhibition catalog that explores how maps were integral to the creation and expansion of the United States, and that everyday people created them. The 120-page book includes pieces that were on exhibit and others important to this story. (High-fives to our partners Mohawk and Yorke Printe Shoppe.)
