New York is The Empire State, but it’s not an empire like ever seen before. This empire is a place that celebrates diversity, culture and variety. New York stands as a benchmark of strength in a free society. From its beautiful mountains in the north to its mammoth city in the south, New York is undeniably the king of states. The border around this poster repeats the phrase, “Unique New York.” Buy Prints Here.

Hello Nevada! Your desert is expansive and hot, but hey- so are your casinos. Of course that’s not all there is to you, but you’re known as the Silver State,  so it’s clear you’ve been aspiring to great heights for awhile now. You may not make it every time, but you’re a star in my books. Buy Prints Here.

Georgia is a truly diverse state. With mountains, ocean front, rural communities, and a sprawling metropolis, this state seems to have it all. It often flies under the radar, but you won’t find a more pleasant place. In Georgia, even the air smells like peaches. Buy Prints Here.


Welcome to South Dakota, the 5th least populous state in the country. It’s the home of the Badlands, the town of Deadwood and the Black Hills. Need I say more? If you come to see Mount Rushmore, just know that this place has a way of getting into your bones, and drawing you back. Buy Prints Here.

Find normal, then head west. You’ve reached West Virgnia; a place that was formed out of the turmoil of the Civil War, and has become renowned for coal mining and mountain-living. If you want to get away from it all, head to the west of the East. Head to West Virginia. Buy Prints Here.

Arkansas is a special place, but it’s undervalued, underestimated and overlooked. Can you name a city in Arkansas other than Little Rock? Didn’t think so. It might interest you to know that Arkansas is the only state in which diamonds are mined, plus it’s home to Bill Clinton and to a large portion of the Ozark Mountains. If you’re out of the loop on Arkansas, you’re truly missing out. Buy Prints Here.

When it comes to history, Massachusetts is very wealthy. It’s the birthplace of great leaders like the Kennedys and the Adams, cultural awakenings like the Boston Tea Party and the abolition of slavery, and important institutions like Harvard and the Boston Red Sox. It may have some quirks, but I think the Mayflower picked a stellar place to land. Buy Prints Here.

There’s no place like New Mexico. Seriously, it has a mix of Spanish and Native American roots that can’t be found anywhere else. As the fourth largest state, New Mexico is commonly known as The Land of Enchantment. This is not just a state to be in – it’s a state of being. Buy Prints Here.

 

Not all mottos reflect the true nature of a state, but North Carolina’s comes pretty close. Esse quam videri means “to be, rather than to seem.” This state is the 10th most populous, yet it flies under the radar of public life. Its beautiful and varied landscapes, and its good-natured people stand unaffected by outside influence. They are who they are, through and through. Buy Prints Here.

It would be a mistake to underestimate the state of Montana in any way. Known as The Treasure State (for Gold & Silver mining) or Big Sky Country (it’s also the 4th largest state), this great place has one theme: abundance. Does it mean everyone there is rich? Not necessarily, but that depends on how you define rich. Buy Prints Here.
