  • (World) Picture Map Of The World

    A large post war pictorial map that was meant to be an interactive tool for children to envision a better world. With many different panels to cut out on a separate sheet which can be added onto the large map, children compose a better world where vignettes show the "right to meet and talk", "right to work" or "The Blessing of the Garden Tools in Africa". It also shows children celebrating Hanukkah, Three Kings' Day, as well as the "International Labor Office". Regionally unique cut out animals can also be added. While vignettes surround the sides and are included on the map, perhaps one of the most telling is at the bottom which shows "Signing the Charter of the United Nations" a hopeful alternative to future wars.

    Condition is very good. Image size approximately 36 x 47 (inches).
