Colourful map from Realites Magazine, March 1967

Over at the fantastic graphic design blog Ace Jet 170, he joked last Thursday about having a 'Found Map Thursday'. I think it could be a fun idea. Maps are something we have to do at work and I often get sick of the in-house newspaper colours. Wouldn't it be great if all of our maps were as colourful as this one I found in a 1960's magazine of my mums? The magazine is 'Realites', and this is from the March issue of 1967. The map designer's name is Claude Porchet, and unfortunately I couldn't find any other work by him on the internet. xxxx
