These are the pages scanned from Postalco library call Maps. Postalco produced a series ‘documenting the use of everyday stationary’. The small, about the size of a 4 x 6 index card book, pamphlet or manifesto has some wonderful drawings of maps people draw for each other. It makes me wish that I had kept some the drawings people drew for me in the past when I was lost.

“When I ask people for directions they sometimes draw a map to explain which way to go.’ – Mike Abelson
