Peter Hiller, Curator of the Jo Mora Trust Collection, chronicles the astonishing career of Joseph Jacinto Mora. Born in Uruguay in 1876, Mora's artistic gifts range over a wide variety of mediums, but he is perhaps best known for his series of maps of California, including one of Los Angeles. LAPL has an original in the Library's map collection, and reprints are sold in the Library Store. These historically accurate, humorous, and collectible prints have entertained viewers for years.
