The Essential Geography is a new form of cartography that has roots in the art of illustration.
By combining the cartographic style of Swiss cartographer, Eduard Imhof, with a terrain image rendered in the aesthetic of botanical painting, the Essential Geography simplifies the United States to its essence, and clarifies its geographic beauty. Rendered in the colors and tones of evening, the Essential Geography shows our country in an entirely new light.
