  • Originally purchased from the Russian Empire in 1867, Alaska became the 49th U.S. state on January 3, 1959. With a land mass larger than Texas, California and Montana and more coastline than the rest of the U.S. combined, Alaska reaches so far to the west that the International Date Line was bent to keep the entire state in the same day.  Alaska is the Westernmost state in the nation, stretching from the Western Hemisphere into the Eastern Hemisphere.  Though the largest in land area with only .9 people per square mile, it is the most sparsely populated U.S. state and one of the least populated places on Earth.

    While known for its diverse terrain of open spaces, amazing scenery, recreational activities and small towns nestled into incredible landscapes, it is North America’s highest peak: Denali at 20,310 feet and the truly magnificent wildlife that captures our hearts and sparks our sense of adventure. From the soaring eagles and lounging puffins to the roaming grizzlies, polar bears and wolves to the sea-faring whales, sea lions and dolphins, whether by air, land or sea it would be hard to experience all of Alaska in a single lifetime.  Yet somehow, Xplorer Maps artist Chris Robitaille has managed to highlight  these amazing features and wildlife in this stunning artistic version of the Alaska State Map.

    Xplorer Maps will donate a portion of all proceeds from the sale of this map to Alaska Geographic, one of our growing list of Public Lands Alliance partners. Please visit akgeo.org to learn more about their mission to connect people to the vast ecosystem and vibrant cultures of Alaska’s public lands.

    It is no great surprise that sunny California is known as the "Golden State" be it from the gold rush, the golden poppies that bloom in spring, the golden grass that blanket many a field or the golden sunsets that end beautiful days along its abundant coast line.  Regardless of its originating nomenclature the "Golden State" is undoubtedly and gloriously fitting.

    California’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, to the Sierra Mountains in the East – from the Redwood Douglas-Fir forests of the northwest, to the Mojave areas in the southeast. So although it is the most populous in the U.S. there is still a variety of natural wonder to behold in California and Xplorer Maps captures it all in this stunning and picturesque California State Map.

    From the lows of death valley, to the coastline and all the wonders the sea beholds, to the peak of Mt. Whitney - the Xplorer Maps version of this iconic state captures the entirety of that 14,728 foot elevation change with nearly everything in between.  From the Point Loma Lighthouse in the southwest to Mt. Shasta in the northeast, artist Chris Robitaille has done an exceptional job illustrating not only nature's bounty but also the man-made marvels that make the California State Map an exceptional artistic piece.

    Canyonlands National Park was established in 1964 and Horseshoe Canyon, a detached unit of Canyonlands, was added in 1971. The region is renowned for its amazing collection of structures, pictographs and petroglyphs that give clues into the history of the hunter-gatherer and agricultural cultures of 2,000 years ago. Combined, these two Utah parks attract more than 3 million visitors annually.

  • 1000 Island, 18 x 24 hand-drawn map
    1000 Island hand-drawn, story map comes in a durable, fully illustrated tube....

  • The Thousand Islands are a group of more than 1,800 islands in the St. Lawrence River, straddling the border of the United States (northern NY) and Canada (southeastern Ontario) stretching about 50 miles downstream from where the river begins at the mouth of Lake Ontario. Along that stretch lay dozens of unique communities ranging from small cities to tiny villages and four-corner hamlets; all filled with rich histories and unique culture on both sides of the border.

    Once a fashionable retreat for the elite in the late 19th century, vacationers have been coming to the 1000 Islands for more than 150 years to enjoy its breathtaking beauty. Waters that were once patrolled by pirates and Prohibition bootleggers are now cruised by cottagers and visiting boaters, who enjoy endless shorelines with serene bays, guided boat trips to historic castles, lighthouses, maritime museums, world-class fishing and diving, quaint downtown shopping, and more.

  • USA hand-drawn, 18 x 24 map
    USA hand-drawn, story map, comes in a durable, fully illustrated tube....

  • The amazing United States of America, as William Guthrie wrote it in 1940, stretches "from California to New York Island, From the Redwood Forest, to the Gulf stream waters" but also includes the picturesque archipelago of Hawaii and the enormous wild lands of Alaska as well as a handful of U.S. territories scattered about the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.

    As one might imagine, this vast landscape is incredibly rich in diversity and technically qualifies as a "megadiverse country" or one that harbors the majority of Earth's species and a high number of endemic species. Capturing that, as well as the rich human history in a single map was certainly no easy task. Xplorer Maps artist Chris Robitaille did a splendid job of highlighting both. From the plains fauna like the roaming bison of North Dakota to the slithering alligators of the Florida swamps to the man-made wonders of the Empire State Building to the Golden Gate Bridge he captured so many pieces of the great American Pie!

    Experience a taste of the entire United States of America in this one-of-a-kind, 100% custom, hand-illustrated artistic map.  The USA Map is 24" wide by 18" tall.
