This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Mississippi River that you might want to check out.

An interesting take on a well-trod cartographic trope -- that being the St. Louis-to-New Orleans Mississippi River "ribbon map" -- this one finds Ed Molitor envisioning it, for the whole distance, in East-facing pseudo-isometric perspective.

I enjoyed it.
