The 1920s to the 1960s are considered the golden era of pictorial maps in America. Wildly popular, these maps highly creative, whimsical and detailed maps covered history, geography and culture and occupy a unique category in the evolution of cartography.

One important New England contributor to this field was the LeBaron-Bonney Company-founded by the Atherton Brothers, Lebaron and Jack in the 1930s and operated out of a number of Massachusetts Northshore communities such as Newburyport, Bradford, Haverhill and Amesbury. Jack was a profoundly talented designer & illustrator and created a number of area maps that reflect the distinct, playful and comprehensive style he infused into each illustrated work.

We have translated our deep affection for these fun and informative maps into high quality artisanal wood jigsaw puzzles for individuals and family alike.

This amazing LeBaron-Bonney example was published in the late 1930s and titled "Cape Ann." and provides a wonderful outline of the towns, waterways and landscape of the area with maritime vessels and waterfront borders.

These pictorial map puzzles are exclusive to New England Sketch Book and only available through our onsite location in Newburyport or via our online shop.
