Art Source International has amassed a collection of authentic antique maps and images brilliantly highlighting and detailing the state of Illinois, which borders Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, and one of the Great Lakes, Lake Michigan. The state is bisected by the Illinois River. Within the state is one of the largest cities in the United States, Chicago where many historical and cultural sites can be found such as the “Cloud Gate” sculpture, otherwise known as “The Bean.” Statehood was granted on December 3, 1818 as the twenty-first state. Art Source International reproductions and vintage maps can be ordered framed or without a frame.
