One of designer Jim Harrison and illustrator Thomas Burns' unique collaborative partnerships is The U.S. Bureau of National Wonders, a series of captivating and inspiring images that explores America’s natural, technological and cultural heritage.
The fictitious Bureau is a collection of images showcasing American cultural heritage, technological achievements and natural beauty. The final works are a composite of hand-rendered and digitally finished techniques. The collaboration takes place remotely—Harrison lives in Gainesville, Florida while Burns has lived near Atlanta, Georgia since 1998.
