    You probably remember his name from the famous recruiting poster he did that showed Uncle Sam pointing with a caption of “I want YOU for the U.S. Army”, this is a much more subdued cartographic image by Flagg. Here a great cartographic novelty where the image of a beloved beautiful woman is seen in islands and continents. Reminiscent of “Gibson Girls” of the period, here the island of Madagascar is her earring, her eyes and lips, islands off the Asian coast. Distances are measured in “Scale of Smiles”.

    Condition is very good. Image size is 7 x 6.25 (inches).
