Project Description

This poster, like all of our work, comes from an original, hand drawn illustration, no computers... then each block, one for each color is hand cut into wood and paired with vintage, hand set type,and hand fed, one at a time into a vintage Vandercook press. We were inspired by old science posters and maps for this one... and love, of course.
