Chicago L map print, 1921
Four private companies built the Chicago Elevated rapid transit system. Most of it was built by 1921, which this map shows. This map was designed as a housewarming gift for some friends of mine that met in college in Chicago, and then got married, ten years later. Design-wise, I was going for a period-correct look, based on poster art from the Jazz Age. This map was featured by Block Club Chicago and Atlas Obscura.
