Plan de Paris
Description:
Created by Ilonka Karasz in 1927, this playfully illustrated tourist guide to Paris highlights the delights found on the city’s labyrinthine streets.

She created several maps and designed in wide variety of other media, including 186 "New Yorker" magazine covers spanning 30 years.
