In 2013, as part of a Master of Fine Arts final project, David Leonnig interpreted a United States map into 51 one-minute vignettes to voice as accompaniment to the printed map,The Essential Geography of the USA. Here are three of the Geography Minutes, done in collaboration with world-famous and award winning map maker, Dave Imus of Imus Geographics. His map was also the inspiration behind a Jazz radio series on KRTS & KXWT in West Texas.
