My brother Johnny gave me a 2017 calendar of historic maps of the world; when the year came to an end, it seemed like a shame to have the map plates go to waste, so I trimmed them out of the calendar and overprinted them with the quote “A Map is the Greatest of All Epic Poems,” attributed to Gilbert Grosvenor, founding editor of National Geographic magazine.

There is a single copy available of each of five variations. Printed in 60 point and 48 point Akzidenz Grotesk in red in lightweight paper on my 105 year old Golding Jobber № 8 letterpress.
