Midwest Muslim


I was asked to create a set of maps for a new book from celebrated author Edward E. Curtis IV about the Syrian history of the American Midwest. The book is about the unknown story of how the first two generations of Syrian Muslim Midwesterners created a life that was Arab, Muslim, and American, all at the same time. It also shows what the land — its fields, creeks, and lakes — meant to their lives. This colorful map features illustrations and locations that are central to the stories in the book.
