Highways of the United States: Maps of States and Regions

Texas_01

In my post about the overall Highways of the United States project, I mentioned that the reason I made the map of the U.S. so big and detailed was so that I could break the map down into individual states and regions. Below is a gallery of all the maps available for sale. You can click on the “View Full Size” text in the gallery lightbox to see the largest preview for each map.

Posters from $22 in the Shop

Posters for Sale!

Each of these maps are available for sale as posters in a variety of carefully selected sizes, as referenced in the table below. A note on the three scales, Scale AScale B and Scale C. Scale A is the largest size, and each scale after that is reproduced at 75 percent of the previous scale. This means that any map  at a particular scale is in proportion to all the other maps at that scale*, regardless of the size of the poster that the map is printed on. Scale B represents the actual size that I created the artwork at: Scale A is an enlargement, while Scale C is a reduction.

*One exception to the rule: Texas and California had to be reduced a small amount to fit properly on their allocated poster sizes (those states are big!), so they are slightly off-scale when compared to the other maps. The posters come in two proportions: square and rectangular. The smaller sizes  in each proportion include a little extra margin around the edge compared to the larger sizes to better facilitate framing of the posters. Paper Sizes - Square Paper Sizes - Rectangular The table shows which paper sizes and scales the posters are available in, with links to each product in the shop. A few of the bigger states are not available in the largest scale, while some states are simply too small in area to include individually at any scale (much of New England, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland). These states have been included in appropriate regional maps as outlined in the table below.
