Description

The Illinois Topographic Map is an 8" x 8" hand-pulled screenprint with varieties on 98 lb Canson Mi-Teintes French paper and paper-backed wood veneer. It was created using gradated colors of light to dark slate gray Speedball acrylic ink which represent the lowest to highest changes in elevation, respectively. Please be sure to specify the paper color or wood veneer of your choice .

Each map print is hand drawn in ink--using digital maps for reference--and then the image is burned onto a silk screen. The handmade template is used to create multiple prints in a variety of colors. I chose to draw every map by hand to highlight the imperfect and tactile qualities of linework that is often lacking in a digital print.

I have always had a passion for maps and love to dissect them when exploring a new region. Beginning with my home state of Illinois, I plan to create a series of state maps to represent everyone's home. I hope they inspire the wanderlust in you too!

Prints look great in a series and the same shipping will apply whether purchasing a single print or multiple. They will be shipped in cardboard sleeves (to protect from any bending) within 3 business days of order and payment processing.

**Please note that the frame is not included in the sale. Refer to photos of the unframed print for truer quality of the linework and paper/veneer, as the reflections in any photo of the framed print may slightly distract from the image.
