Since launching last year, Amtrak's on-board magazine, The National, has tasked an American artist to create their own interpretation of the Amtrak route map for each issue.  With the seventh map (above) just released with their most recent October - November 2017 issue, we spoke to The National's Art Director Rickard Westin about the project and each map so far.

Read on for Rickard's insight on how this feature came to be and get some behind-the-scenes information on each Amtrak route map.
