Printing the map

The map I'm including with the new book is printed using a "suicide" linoleum block in the background with the detail printed using photo polymer plates.

After doing an overall print of light tan, all the states were cut and printed in a darker color

Then all the states except Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas and Texas were cut away and the final layer was printed. The route and type was printed with polymer plates.

The title block

Inside the front cover is the pocket for the folded map.

The final map unfolded.
