Minimalist stateside maps


It can be all too easy to criticise escalator-blocking tourists from US of A. "Only a third of them have passports", we scoff with assumed European worldliness.

All 50 states have received the minimalist design treatment, pinning the major cities of each to an angular representation of their geography. Also, can anyone tell us why Wisconsin is known as the Badger State?

Here are some of our favourites:
