Images from the First Colour Publication on Fish (1754) Originally published in 1719, with a second edition in 1754, Poissons, Ecrevisses et Crabes can lay claim to being the earliest known publication in colour on fish — in this case, celebrating those hailing from the waters of the East Indies.

Marsha Emanuel, à propos du graphisme d'utilité publique

Parmi celles-ci, nous comptons un texte très éclairant de Marsha Emanuel sur le «graphisme d'utilité publique». Après avoir beaucoup croisé cette appellation au moment de notre mémoire Citoyen-graphiste, nous voulions y revenir pour finir d'en comprendre la genèse, l'apogée et son état actuel. Pour nous informer, nous avons évidemment pensé à celle qui fût commissaire de l'exposition Images d'utilité publique et, durant plusieurs années, chargée de mission pour le graphisme à la Délégation aux Arts plastiques.

I found, tucked in almost every issue, one of the magazine’s gorgeous maps—of the Moon, St. Petersburg, the Himalayas, Eastern Europe’s ever-shifting boundaries. I became a cartography enthusiast and geographical sponge, poring over them for years just for the sheer enjoyment of it, a pleasure that remains with me today. Whether you’re like me and simply love the imaginative exercise of tracing a map’s lines and contours and absorbing information, or you love to do that and you get paid for it, you’ll find innumerable ways to spend your time on the new Open Access Maps project at the New York Public Library. The NYPL announces the release with the explanation below: The Lionel Pincus & Princess Firyal Map Division is very proud to announce the release of more than 20,000 cartographic works as high resolution downloads.
