$5,600.00Hillam--CorbinFirst-Silicon-Valley-Advertising-Pictorial-MapOriginal first pictorial advertising map locating "Silicon Valley". In 1981, artist Corbin Hillam unveiled a remarkable pictorial advertising map of Silicon Valley California, an artistic and commercial illustration that inspired a series of more than eighteen similar pictorial advertising maps created by various artists and publishers. Together the maps (1) provide an informative graphical time series of the firms active in Silicon Valley and the Santa Clara Valley Region in the late 20th century. <br><br> Analysis: The map is important as it is among the few remaining copies of Hillam's 1981 Silicon Valley map, created in the year IBM introduced its inaugural personal computer or PC, a groundbreaking event that sent ripples of innovation across the business landscape. IBM's PC served as a resounding testament, affirming the tangible reality of personal computing and establishing its enduring presence. 1981 was the year that personal computing won the corporate seal of approval. <br><br> Copyright Eclectibles, 1981. <br><br> <div id="6760" align="center"> <a title=""></a> <img id="6760" src="/ZoomifyImages/SC_6760/SC_6760_detail_1.jpg" alt="First Silicon Valley Advertising Pictorial Map.
