Light and fresh kitchen with the Alaska framed map art by Chris Robitaille.

Original, hand-drawn story map and accompanying gifts of Alaska by renowned Illustrator and Xplorer Maps Co-Founder, Chris Robitaille.

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.

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 to learn more about their mission to connect people to the vast ecosystem and vibrant cultures of Alaska’s public lands.
