What a great exhibit and catalogue. Has the catalogue been published (other than on the web)? I'd like to get a printed copy if it's available.

Tony Cambpell has wisely suggested that I send a notice through the ISHMap-List, so please, see below.
Thank you and best wishes,

Dear colleagues and friends,
I am very happy to share with you one of the most beautiful and exciting projects in which I have been involved recently: curating the exhibition Marginalia in cARTography that will take place at the Chazen Museum of Art, Madison, WI (US), from Feb. 28-May 18, 2014. This project was developed thanks to the 2012-2013 David Woodward Memorial Fellowship, that I enjoyed last year.
Marginalia in cARTography explores images at the margins of maps, as this marginalia sheds light on the content and purpose of the maps, their authors and patrons, and on the historical period when they were made. It gathers 44 items from the 13 th to the 20 th centuries, from various US institutions.
It has been an intense job (selecting the items, organizing the thematic sections, writing the catalogue, etc) but I have been able to count on many people without whom this would not have been possible, especially the staff of the History of Cartography Project, the Chazen Museum of Art, all the lending institutions and others, and many more who have kindly helped me along the way.
You can find more information about it at the website of the Chazen Museum of Art ( http://www.chazen.wisc.edu/visit/events-calendar/event/marginalia-in-cartography/ ). The catalogue of the exhibition is available in high resolution at the following link: https://uwmadison.app.box.com/marginalia .
I hope this project if of your interest! Thank you for your time and best wishes,
Sandra Sáenz-López Pérez
