Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ernest Dudley Chase was a graphic artist from the 1930s and 40s. Born in Lowell, MA, Chase (1878-1966) worked for Rust Craft Publishers which printed greeting cards. Chase was the acknowledged expert in the greeting card business in the United States. Chase's maps were an extension of his work as a graphic artist and also reflected an international trend toward pictorial mapmaking. These decorative maps, which experienced resurgence in public popularity after 1913, are a genre in which the cartography is animated with illustrations of buildings, people, and animals. Often including historical references, the maps also frequently depicted airplanes and other modes of transportation. Borrowing from typical Renaissance cartography, Chase and other pictorial mapmakers used embellishments like compass roses, ornate cartouches, and decorative borders. The author lives in Winchester, MA.
