The Play Generated Map and Document Archive

There is a cool website called "The Play Generated Map and Document Archive" that is starting to pick up some steam and is well worth checking out.  In their own words -

PlaGMaDA's mission is to preserve, present, and interpret play generated cultural artifacts, namely manuscripts and drawings created to communicate a shared imaginative space.  The Archive will solicit, collect, describe, and publicly display these documents so as to demonstrate their relevance, presenting them as both a historical record of a revolutionary period of experimental play and as aesthetic objects in their own right.  By fostering discussion and educating the public, it is hoped that the folkways which generate these documents can be encouraged and preserved for future generations.

Check them out and add your own old maps and documents here!
