New Map Project: Highways of the United States
At long last, I can finally unveil my (almost) completed map project that i’ve been working on since May 31, 2012. Yes, 2012!
I’ve given plenty of teasers about this project over the last two years, but I still think the final scale of it will amaze you. Not only have I created a map of the contiguous United States that shows every single last active and numbered Interstate Highway and U.S. Route (both two- and three-digit), but I’ve also broken the map down into separate state and regional maps. So far, I’ve made 33 of these maps and there’s another 11 to go to complete the set. There aren’t 48 state maps because some of them are just too small to show individually (I’m looking at you, Rhode Island!). These are included in regional maps like New England or Chesapeake (Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and DC).
Posters in a variety of sizes are available in my brand new shop. Orders taken up to the end of the month of April are pre-orders; I expect to begin shipping in the first week of May.

I’m very pleased to announce that my Interstates as a Subway Map and U.S. Highways as a Subway Map posters are once again available for purchase directly through my website this holiday season.
I’ve even made some revisions to the Interstate map to bring it up to date. These include the addition of the brand new Interstate 2 in Texas, a new segment of I-49 in Missouri and a new section of I-74 in North Carolina.
The posters are 36” wide by 24” deep, and are once again superbly printed by Wallblank. I’ve been working with them for four years now, and they always do a great job for me. They’re ready to get printing, so orders will be on their way to you quickly!
As previously, each poster is available individually for just $39 plus shipping — but you can also order a Combo Pack: one of each poster for just $68 plus shipping (a $10 saving).
Please visit my personal site to place your order.

If you’ve been thinking of picking up one of my transit map posters, now might be a good time: Society6 is offering free shipping on prints worldwide until next Sunday, January 27.
Here’s some direct links to some of the posters I offer:
As always, I highly recommend purchasing only the X-LARGE or LARGE versions of these prints: they’re designed as large format posters and type may become too small to be legible at sizes smaller than these.
It would be most remiss of me not to mention this Kickstarter project from Andrew Lynch, also known as vanshnookenraggen. As well as these great posters, he’s also responsible for the fantastic animated history of the MBTA map that I’ve featured before.
Basically, Andrew is seeking funding for bulk printing of these posters (in effect, your pledge to him is a preorder for the poster(s) of your choice). For every $25 you pledge, you get another poster, all the way up to $225 for the entire set of nine.
Printing won’t start until next year, so they won’t arrive for Christmas, but if you like the look of this (and I sure do!), I strongly encourage you to get behind this project and give what you can. $25 for an awesome NYC subway poster sounds like a good deal to me. I’ve personally pledged $50 to the project and hope you can join me.
Just a reminder - today is the absolute last day to order my Interstates as Subway Map or U.S. Routes as Subway Map posters. I’ll fulfill any orders made up until midnight U.S. Pacific time tonight, and then that’s it… at least for the foreseeable future.

Interstates as Subway Map and U.S. Routes as Subway Map Posters - Almost Sold Out!
By now, I’m sure most of you are familiar with my Interstates as Subway Map (Project Page | Flickr) and U.S. Routes as Subway Map (Project Page | Flickr) posters. Sales since December - when I first launched the U.S. Routes map - have been exceptional, but things have now slowed down to a point where I’m considering suspending sales for a while.
As it currently stands, I have one single Interstate poster left for sale, and just three U.S. Routes posters. If there’s some immediate interest in more posters, then I’ll fulfill those orders as well. But time is definitely limited! So, if you’ve been thinking about getting one of these posters and haven’t acted - then now is the time. If you know someone who’d like one of these posters, then send them the link. Spread the word!

There’s still a couple of minor tweaks to make, but 36”x24” posters of my new U.S. Highways as Subway Map posters are now available to order at my website. Due to popular demand, I’ve also brought back my Interstates as Subway poster. Each poster is beautifully digitally printed on superb 250gsm Red River Aurora Fine Art White 100% cotton rag paper, which is acid and lignin free. Price for each poster is $US39, or you can buy both of them together for $US68, a savings of $10.
