Leelanau Makes The Cover, Again!

By Emily Tyra | Nov. 15, 2021

It was one year ago this month that National Geographic dropped its stunning December magazine cover featuring a moody Lake Michigan view from Leelanau County’s own Empire Bluff. 

And now our distinctive Leelanau landscape graces the cover of yet another distinguished institution: Oxford University Press’s Essential World Atlas. Michigan’s pinkie and the Manitous are the emblem of the entire world in the atlas’s eighth addition, released this year. (Telling you now, in case it helps with holiday shopping for your favorite Leelanau lovers…)
