Outer Banks, Letterpress Map

The Outer Banks is a string of peninsulas and barrier islands separating the Atlantic Ocean from mainland North Carolina. Before bridges were built in the 1930s, the only form of transport between or off the islands was by boat, which allowed for the islands to stay isolated from much of the rest of the mainland. This helped to preserve the maritime culture and the distinctive Outer Banks brogue, which sounds more like an English accent than it does an American accent.

Hand-drawn and printed on an old-fashioned letterpress to look like an authentic artifact, each piece is tinted with watercolor.

Printed on beautiful 100% cotton archival paper.

Sold unframed, but easy to frame (fits right in an 11 x 17" frame). Printed in a limited edition. Signed, dated and numbered.

This map will be carefully packed in a cellophane sleeve, nestled between sturdy cardboard, and shipped in a firm flat mailer.
