Lead Image

This thoroughly comprehensive map of the 2013 New York City Marathon commemorates the route which takes runners through all five boroughs in three screenprinted inks on French’s Dur-o-tone Newsprint Aged paper. Artist/designer Karl LaRocca’s must have an inclination toward impressive and tedious tasks as he completed both the marathon and this poster.

Project Description

Staten Island to Central Park through 5 boroughs and over 5 bridges! Printed at Kayrock Screenprinting and designed by artist and marathon finisher Karl LaRocca, this incredibly detailed New York metro area map of the 2013 NYC Marathon route was printed with three individual passes of waterbased screenprinting ink in our North Brooklyn studio which just happens to overlook the marathon halfway point on the Polaski Bridge.

Production Lesson(s)

Super thin lines print best with transparent inks.”
