I found this lovely vintage Atlas, with great colors, I had to print on it, so I took it apart and have printed my favorite quote from Susan Sontag:
"I have not been everywhere, but it is on my list" , I love it!
The area on the map is Western Europe including Spain, the UK isles, Norway, Morocco, and even a bit of Greenland.
As a printmaker, paper is an obsession and vintage maps have always fascinated me. I was lucky to find a vintage Atlas to do something fun with, but of course, every print is a one off, as there are no repeat pages! If you see your bit of the world, or the bit you long for, then get it right away as gone is gone! As it is vintage, there are some stains and foxing on the pages, I love the wear and life it has had, and hope you will too!
A hand printed linocut, printed by me, the artist, I print the linocut plate in a warm velvety black.
This of course means that the print will be different every time, so this is a monoprint.
