2nd Edition, The Essential Geography USA
I gave the 2nd Edition's new background illustration the color, tone and texture of a detailed watercolor painting. This technique presents the Untied States in 3-D realism that makes geography more intuitive, and geography's physical beauty more apparent.
"This is an amazing, thoughtful, and detailed map...” -Edward Tufte
"...even clearer and more aesthetic than the first edition." -Bernie Jenny, Swiss shaded relief expert
"This is a map that you will surely want to look at again and again." -Tom Patterson, American shaded relief expert

By clearly presenting the patterns of land, water and humanity, the 2nd Edition captures the essence of United States geography. Realism in the new terrain illustration shows the intuitive side of geography, and makes geographic appreciation accessible to the general population.
"The clarity with which this map conveys information is stunning." -Nik Schulz, West County Explorers ClubRead more
The key to the 2nd Edition’s communicative success is in your ability to simultaneously see landforms, water courses, and the human footprint. When you can clearly see the complimentary patterns of these three geographic elements, you perceive geography.
To maintain crisp contrast between geographic elements, all reproduction of the 2nd Edition benefits from the brilliant colors and broad tonal range of fine-art inkjet printing.
