Charming pictorial bird's-eye view of Indianapolis, riffing off of Saul Steinberg's famous New Yorker cover.
The view shows downtown Indiana looking north. The White River is at the left, with Lake Michigan and the North Pole beyond.
The view is based on Saul Steinberg's famous New Yorker magazine cover "View of the World from 9th Avenue", which appeared in March 1976, and lampooned New Yorkers' alleged navel-gazing attitude.
The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one, by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit.
