Florida Map Letterpress 8x8

22.00

Despite being littered with swamp and alligators, Florida is always accountable to some of the sunniest days.

Here's a map that explains the pathways around the fragmented landscape.

8”x8” Letterpress printed on Crane’s Lettra with deep impression.

Framing:

These prints fit in an Ikea frame, but you'll need your own matting (I suggest getting a mat cut from your local framer)

We also offer framing through Mel's Frame Shop in Portland, Oregon:

What's the big idea?

New research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. My maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind" for each city, simplifying structures and districts in the simplest terms. The circle, our Universe's softest shape, clearly conveys size and connections.
