"Wick create[d] a map not only of the country, but its multifaceted ideals"
--National Geographic Traveler

"Emily Wick's The Fifty United States and their Mottos is composed of 50 separate linoleum block prints, each of which were individually carved, printed, scanned and ditigally scaled. This interpretation of the American map as a patchwork of individual state mottos likens the landscape to a colorful fabric imprinted with the country's ideological history."
--Fritz Kessler, Mapping America: Exploring the Continent
