Product Description

From Native American populations in the early 1700’s, Spanish expeditionists in the late 1700’s, Franciscan Missionaries, Mexican Ranchos and gold struck miners of the 1800’s through the industrial age and World War II ship building, earthquakes and other man-made disaster to the brilliance and bustle of the present day (phew)- “The Bay” has seen and endured it all! San Francisco Bay is an extraordinary, and remarkably resilient, body of water. Bustling with ships and forty-six cities, the bay is still home to healthy eelgrass beds, young Dungeness crabs and sharks, and millions of waterbirds, many of which are depicted in this old-world style, hand-drawn San Francisco Bay Map.

This San Francisco Bay Map explores it all with stunning, hand-illustrated graphics and rich historical excerpts. From The Bay Bridge to Treasure Island and from the giant pacific octopus to the leopard shark – if it’s in, around or about The Bay, it’s in there.

All Xplorer Maps products are HAND-DRAWN, HAND-LETTERED illustrations crafted by internationally renowned artist Chris Robitaille using his antique, old-world style intended to pay homage to the early cartographers.
