This charming map puzzle shows an animated Utah, the Center of “Scenic America.” Amusing notes and location names are dotted between charming illustrations drawn by Jolly Lindgren. The Lindgren Brothers began their commercial career as sign artists, but eventually moved into cartography with the successful introduction of their “hysterical” maps in the 1930’s. Operating out of Spokane, they focused on making maps of western states, National Parks, and popular destinations.

The puzzle is preserved in the original souvenir envelope, describing the map as “entertaining, educational, [and] fun for everyone.”
