Free Printable Wall Art: Massive Map of America’s Rivers – 36″ x 24″

Free Printable Wall Art: Massive Map of America’s Rivers – 36″ x 24″
A stunning map of America’s 250,000+ waterways.

Artist Brian Andreas once said, “I like geography best … because your mountains & rivers know the secret. Pay no attention to boundaries.” He could have been talking about this enormous 36″ x 24″ rendering of American rivers created by Michael Bostock as part of this tutorial on vector drawings.

Like an anatomical chart of an organism, it’s beautiful, minimalist, and detailed at same time. It’s the perfect showpiece for a living room where guests will see it and linger, picking out local rivers they know. It also works well in an office or bedroom for something surprising and profound – a reminder that America is an interconnected, living system.

This version – 100% free, as always – is scaled down to fit in white Ikea Ribba frame size 24″ x 35.75″

I printed at Costco for only $14.99 at 24″x36″ – note, however, that you can't order this size online. You’ll also want to check that your local Costco does larger prints like this; some do, some don’t. If Costco isn’t an option, a Staples architectural print should do the trick.

    Can you speak to the odor of the blanket? I see several reviews that claim it has a strong fuel odor that does not dissipate with washings.

      It does have a smell, I wouldn’t say it’s a strong fuel odor…I think its just because of the wool. Febreeze etc. would probably take care of it. Sitting on my couch right now and don’t notice it, but I did yesterday.

    Have you found any more traditional USA maps that are printable worthy? I like the minimalistic look of this one but my wife is looking for something to track our travels.

    Love the art series keep it up!

    Every time I try to download the print, it only downloads a 68 MB image. How do I download the full resolution print?
