Readers probably think I am just a little bit obsessed with the Library?s 1507 Waldseem?World Map, which opens Dec. 13 in the dazzling new ?Exploring the Early Americas? exhibit.
Thankfully, it would seem that I am not alone. Clicking over to Reuters? main page for U.S. news, I found that their story on the map and the exhibit is at the top of the list under ?most read articles.? (The story also has some good photos of the meticulous job of installing the map.)
UPDATE: The story on Yahoo! News?also on the front page?includes 19 gorgeous photos (I?m a huge fan of ?13 of 19,? with the Capitol in the background).
