World War II Led to a Revolution in Cartography

World War II Led to a Revolution in Cartography | Navigate | Scoop.it

"More Americans came into contact with maps during World War II than in any previous moment in American history. From the elaborate and innovative inserts in the National Geographic to the schematic and tactical pictures in newspapers, maps were everywhere. On September 1, 1939, the Nazis invaded Poland, and by the end of the day a map of Europe could not be bought anywhere in the United States. In fact, Rand McNally reported selling more maps and atlases of the European theaters in the first two weeks of September than in all the years since the armistice of 1918. Two years later, the attack on Pearl Harbor again sparked a demand for maps."

22 Stunning Examples Of Animal Body Art | Navigate | Scoop.it
Many people feel an especially close connection with our animal brethren, which is probably a big part of why we find animal body art like this so appealing – these models, and the artists who paint on them, create a figurative representation of the relationship we share with all life. There are all sorts of things that body artists can draw on their human canvases, but organic animal forms seem to match best with the shapes of our own bodies.
