These United States
is a celebration of the magnificence of the United States of America and a tribute to all that makes it great. Photographer Jake Rajs devoted the past eighteen years to traveling and photographing the United States in all its glory.
This sumptuous, stately volume showcases breathtaking panoramic photos of the United States-from the East to West Coast; from the wilderness of the frontier to the cities; and from the earliest American historical landmarks to images of America post-9/11. Each panorama is reproduced in a double-page spread, resulting in a single stunning photograph that measures twelve inches tall and thirty-two inches in length. Additionally, there are ten gatefold reproductions, some of which result in a single image more than five feet long. This book's unparalleled grandeur mirrors the breadth and scope of the heart and spirit of the United States.
Each magnificent book is individually numbered, in a strictly limited edition of 5,000 copies, and includes a numbered print signed by the artist. These United States stunningly captures our United States in all its glory and is sure to be the ultimate gift book of 2003.
