My dad recently ordered a "triptik" style road trip planner from the Allstate Motor Club. On the envelope that the maps were mailed in was a really fun USA map graphic that I wanted to share, but also learn more about.
I couldn't find it online anywhere, and I'm curious if anybody knows the origins of this art.
Thanks,
-Jesse

Was there a sing-a-long included with this map?

Which is something I might start providing for my clients, a little song on the back of the map.

That's a pretty cool map, if I was a kid I would want to follow the lines sort of like a maze. ;)

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

It looks circa 1970s... although I suppose it could be more modern and intentionally retro.
