The Essential Geography is a new form of cartography that is rooted in the art of visual communication, rather than in the science of map making.
By combining the principles of cartographic clarity as described by Swiss cartographer, Eduard Imhof, with the aesthetic of a painting, the Essential Geography captures the physical essence and beauty of the United States. Because the overall presentation is clear, and the terrain in the background is reminiscent of the real world, the Essential Geography is simple to understandable and itís almost as enjoyable to explore as the United States itself.
