Afterlives of the Commune

I recently drew attention to Kristin Ross's striking new book on the Paris Commune, posting an interview with Ross which was originally published on Jacobin's website.

Now I want direct readers to a wonderful collection of maps of the shifting topographies of the Commune, published by Leopold Lambert, and linked by Verso:

Chrono-cartography of the Paris Commune


This link takes the reader to the exciting and interesting website/blog of Leopold Lambert, an architect and cartographer working both in Paris and New York.  At the moment, clicking on M. Lambert's site brings me to a SiteAdvisor warning, but hopefully he will clean up his site, or otherwise fix it, so that such impediments to its being read will cease to be.
