Made of microfiber, the waterproof fabMAP® features the Inauguration site and surrounding area. It's tear-proof, won't wrinkle, and has many uses including cleaning glasses, mobile device screens and camera lenses. This napkin-sized fabric map easily fits into a purse or pocket but also features intricate mapping detail. The President Barack Obama Commemorative Inaugural fabMAP® is more than a unique Obama collectible or Obama gift. It's also the easiest way for visitors and even locals to find the roads and points of interest during the Presidential Inauguration.
Available only while supplies last, this limited-edition inauguration souvenir fabMAP® features an easy-to-read detailed map of the Mall area and parade route from the Capitol to the White House. One side of the map includes notable D.C. monuments and museums, including the newly renovated National Museum of American History, as well as hotels and points of interest such as the Verizon Center and B. Smith's Restaurant in Union Station, formerly the Presidential Suite where presidents waited to board trains and greeted foreign dignitaries. The reverse side includes a vivid, full-color portrait of President-elect Obama against the backdrop of the Capitol building, where he will be sworn in on January 20, 2009, as the 44th President of the United States.
The President Barack Obama Commemorative Inaugural fabMAP® comes with a certificate of authenticity and is available at Rand McNally's Online Travel Store and select retail outlets in the Washington, D.C. area, including D.C. area Target stores, Books-A-Million in DuPont Circle, Dulles Airport gift shops, and Harris Teeter in Northern Virginia, among others.
