Product Description

The spectacularly scenic landscapes of Alaska and its inhabitants coupled with  illustrations from one of the world’s greatest wildlife realism artists, has resulted in our most wild, dynamic and colorful map to date – the Alaska State Map.

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.
