This terrific full-color poster was apparently created by Arbuckle Bros. as a point-of-sale promotional tool for the State Map series. Similar posters were produced for the Cooking, National Geographical and Zoological series. (If anyone has any pictures of other posters for any of the Arbuckle card series' that they'd be willing to share, please let me know.)

NOTE: I've also acquired several pieces of scrap cut from a similar poster, consisting of card images that show different states than the "cards" depicted on this particular poster. That would seem to indicate that at least one additional poster with a similar format was produced to promote the State Maps series. To see images of these scrap pieces, and notes on how they relate to this poster, see the State Maps Errors & Curiosities page.
