They represent ideas of identity, territoriality, resources, technology and design. They can be incredibly difficult to fold and we would be lost without them. Maps have been on our minds a lot recently. Maybe because we helped print the intricate and outlandish maps created by Adam Dant to commemorate the centenary of Arnold Circus in Shoreditch, and the possibly fictitious "Library of Outlandia". Using Papago 240gsm in billiard green for the card covers and an unbleached Cyclus Offset 140gsm for the map itself a "Journey through the Great Glen..." is a beautifully idiosyncratic peice of print. Machine made but with the look and feel of real craft and graft.
