The combined influences of land, water, air and all living things converge to sculpt the Earth's surface into a work of functional art called geography.
Large and incomprehensibly elegant, the Earth's surface is functional art that we live within and help to sculpt, making it worth our notice and understanding. But often, this functional art we live within and help to sculpt, goes unnoticed and is poorly understood.
I made the Essential Geography of the United States of America with the idea that it would allow more Americans to take note of and understand the amazing work that land, water, air and all living things have done in the part of the world we call "home."
