Ingeniously charting Anglophone countries with city names written in their correct geographical location, Bold & Noble's striking maps are a typographic puzzle that stimulate the eye as well as the mind. The U.S., U.K., Australia, New Zealand and a detailed London are each transcribed, with various font weights drawing attention to the major destinations.

Hand-pulled and screen-printed on a medium weight 100% recycled card, each map is crafted using hand-mixed inks white print on contrasting Duck Egg Blue or Sheer Slate backgrounds.
