Jewish Literary Maps

“It is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite… Thus the lover of universal life enters into the crowd as though it were an immense reservoir of electrical energy. Or we might liken him to a mirror as vast as the crowd itself; or to a kaleidoscope gifted with consciousness, responding to each one of its movements and reproducing the multiplicity of life and the flickering grace of all the elements of life.” - Charles Baudelaire, The Painter of Modern Life

Inspired by some of the wonderful literary maps we've seen around the web (we're looking at you Warby Parker and Dorothy), Jewish Book Council decided to design similar designs with a Jewish literary angle. The Jewish Book Council’s literary maps marks the landmarks, descriptions, and allusions found in the works of some of our heritage’s greatest writers.
