A gay geography

by Ruth Taylor
Boston, USA

Ruth Taylor White used her cartographic illustration career to publish a significant number of pictorial maps from 1920s into the 1940s. She used bobble-headed cartoon characters to engaged in profound stereotyping with regard to culture, race, gender and class. They reveal not only the aesthetic and conceptual preferences of their maker but also the cultural biases of their middle-class, white American audience like in A gay geography Boston.
