Kyle Durrie of Power and Light Press was one of the exhibitors we met at Signature Mix, the NYC trade show we did earlier this year. This letterpress studio is based in Silver City, NM and, among other things, offers really nicely done US state map prints.
Each map includes little images that present that state. See? Buckeyes and a cardinal for Ohio:
These prints are inspired by kitschy souvenirs that Kyle collected in every state as she toured around the US in her Type Truck, a 1982 Chevy step van converted into a fully functional letterpress print shop, in which she traveled the country to teach workshops and spread the word about letterpress printing. Awesome, right? Shop for Power and Light wares here.
