Xplorer Maps, founded in Missoula, MT in 2010, has just released their most recent hand-drawn, hand-lettered fine art map “California.”
World-renowned illustrator Chris Robitaille (an Xplorer Maps co-founder) has rendered this incredibly unique artistic creation featuring many of the truly iconic images (and some less so) of the nation’s 31st state. From the Redwood Forests to the Golden Gate Bridge to Channel Islands National Park, this map captures not only nature’s bounty but also the man-made marvels that make the state of California an exceptional artistic canvas. The striking contrast in
landscapes is immediately recognizable and will help make this artwork a stunning addition to any home, office or cabin decor.
Xplorer Maps connects people and place one map at a time by using these one-of-a-kind, HAND-DRAWN and HAND-LETTERED illustrated maps to effectively “tell the story.” Ultimately, the goal is to help protect and preserve the special places that provide inspiration for the maps, as well as make memorable lifetime connections between people and place.
Xplorer Maps works diligently to ensure historical and geographic accuracy, educational merit, interpretive engagement, biological diversity and cultural relevance. Every line, letter and icon in this illustration is custom and drawn entirely by hand; absolutely unique and original.
With uncompromising attention to detail, exquisite world-class artistry and accurate historical reflection, Xplorer Maps is proud to include “California” into their ever-growing map collection of unique illustrated maps of significant destinations worldwide.
This fine art illustrated map of CALIFORNIA is now available at selected retail shops, lodges, resorts and welcome centers throughout the state and online at: www.xplorermaps.com.
