Map to the Next World letterpress broadside

Letterpress 3-run broadside printed with a Vandercook Proof Press on Johannot dampened paper. Text excerpts are from the poem A Map to the Next World by Joy Harjo. The metal type was handset in Joanna Italic and the original illustration was printed from a polymer plate. The map projection used is based on the Gall-Peters projection. Designed and printed by Amanda Johnson in 2013 at the UICB, 10 × 12 in, edition of 30. 
A view of the tree illustration rotated 90 degrees reveals the world map (Gall-Peters projection).
Colophon at the bottom of the broadside. Read Joy's entire poem here: http://www.poetryfoundation.org/poem/179781
