We’ve been in love with maps since childhood. Maps represent exploration and possibility, but they also depict specific (biased) ways of viewing the world. Geopolitical states are artificial constructs that define the limits of our opportunities and experiences. In our era of political, technological, and climate tumult, boundaries and borders are increasingly symbolic and rapidly shifting. 

The concept for these two prints originated from an album cover design for our former band, Double Dagger. These prints, created with the Aesthetic Union in San Francisco, gave us the opportunity to expand on the theme and to take advantage of the tactile qualities of letterpress.
