David Bowman knew every flag of the world by sight at the age of three. Soon after he could name every capital city of every state and country as well. Not many kids at that age get their kicks by studying road atlases, but this love for all things geography paid off a few years later as he advanced to the state finals of the Michigan Geography Bee. His affinity for photography, illustration and graphic design informs this growing collection of flags, maps and other art celebrating the symbols and shapes of our world. Today, David can still be found perusing the 1973 Hammond World Atlas his father gave him all those years ago.
