This series included scenes and maps from all fifty states (or territories) and is a wonderful example of American advertising art. The small maps were tucked into packages of Arbuckle's coffee as a premium, which kept Arbuckles customers loyal to their brand as they collected all the maps in the series. The charming graphics demonstrate pride of place and give some clues about landmarks, local industry, population and more.
