Experience the beauty and complexity of California's geological landscape like never before with our stunning 3D illusion map. Crafted from the original 1977 California Geological map, this unique map is designed and printed at the highest level to showcase every detail of the state's varied terrain.

To create this map, we applied Digital Elevation Data and meticulously added shaded relief to the landscape of the original 1977 California Geological map. The result is a stunning 3D illusion that showcases every detail of the state's complex geological formations. The shading is printed directly on the paper itself, creating a seamless and beautiful design that can be framed traditionally.

Our commitment to quality ensures our maps are designed and printed at the highest level making sure every detail is captured with precision and accuracy. From the vibrant colors to the intricate details, every aspect of this map is crafted to perfection.

Please Note: Text on the map can be difficult to read due to the small font size and the age of the map. In areas where the relief shading covers the text, the underlying text is not legible. We suggest the largest size map for better details though the text may still be covered in the darker areas.

        Nice piece of art but print too small

        My boyfriend is a geologist and I bought this as a gift. He loves it and I really like it as a colorful piece of art, but we both agree it's a shame the print is so small. You need a magnifying glass to easily read it. I bought the 24x26 size and I wouldn't want anything bigger on our walls.

        Awesome customer experience and quality

        I’ve been eyeing these posters for a while and decided to take the plunge when I got a new apartment. It’s been an amazing piece of art and conversation piece and I feel like I learn something every day looking at it. It’s printed on high quality stock and it looks identical to the picture shown. The shape of the poster is non-standard, but it looks very good in a slightly oversized frame. Poster shipped from Southern California and arrived in just under two days (honestly, a very pleasant surprise).

        I’d highly recommend these to anybody who needs some new creative art and likes maps. The only problem you’ll have is that you’ll want to buy more.

        Excellent quality and customer service. Beautiful map. We opted to go frameless but would purchase the map framed if I had to do it again.
