This print by Ploterre was inspired by the book Landmarks by Robert McFarlane, which details the richness of language used across the UK to describe the natural world.
The words used to create this map are just a selection and have been unearthed across the UK from Jersey to Shetland. Every element covering the contours to the summits have been created by these words. Each word was first translated into a numerical value and these values were then used to create the marks.
The print is a risograph, which has been printed by Risotto Studio in Glasgow. Risograph is a cross between a screen print and a photocopy and uses soy based inks, which are environmentally friendly.
The paper has been made by a paper miill in Yorkshire using FSC accredited pulp.
Each print is packaged in a poster tube made from 100% recycled paper (no plastic), which has been made in Worcestershire.
Frame not included. Framing options are available but not as shown in the photos.
