Description

This lovely view of Silicon Valley captures the region at an interesting point in its history. This was a stylistic innovation for representations of Silicon Valley, drawing on the successful map genre of highlighting local businesses small and large.

The mapmaker has employed a clever distortion to show the valley wrapping around the southern end of San Francisco Bay, and extending nearly to the city of San Francisco itself.
