    This is a poster of Comic #1079, United Shapes. It's a hand-drawn map I made of the United States, with every state replaced by something I've always thought the state was shaped like like. (Florida is an eggplant, of course, what else would it be?) The poster is full-color print from the original art and measures 24 inches by 36 inches.

Millions of Americans believed that there was plenty of oppurtunity out West and were encouraged to settle the land.
