Washington 1915


After this, I promise, I'll leave off on The National Geographic for a while but, this pull-out from a 1915 edition really struck me. It's a diagram showing the public/civic/government building program which was going on in Washington at that time. I love everything about it: colour, design, texture (it's on very smooth, shiny paper), even the wonderful conceit and confidence it represents.
