Come explore realms and cities, lands and planets that never existed save in the imagination! Fantastical lands await you at the Worlds Imagined: Maps of Imaginary Places Collection exhibition. Plan your next adventure to your favorite literary, film, or game locale using maps from the Cushing Memorial Library & Archives and Maps & GIS collections. View a rare antique map of North America featuring California as a mythical island, and more contemporary maps of wondrous places like Oz, Narnia, Middle-earth, Skyrim, and the United Federation of Planets.

The exhibition is supported by the generosity of Barbara and Daniel Clinton, Jr. ’52. Additional support provided by the Texas A&M Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research. Illustrated exhibition catalogues are no longer available in print form, but a free PDF version can be accessed at:
