Note
  • "'The Mappist', Barry Lopez's multi-layered short story, has been made into a limited edition of forty-eight copies in the summer and fall of 2005. Images of hands emulating gestures of a map maker at work have been reproduced as digital pigment prints on transparent film. Each book has been assembled using original USGS maps for the concertina binding and selected pages, and the cover has been wrapped with a reproduction of a 1911 map of Bogotá from the collection of the Library of Congress. Landscape images and the image of pencils on the adjacent page have been created as monotypes with pastel and printed as digital pigment prints. The text has been printed letterpress by Les Ferriss on BFK Rives using a Garamond Narrow typeface. John DeMerritt made the slipcase and board covers with the assistance of Kris Langan. The book design and images have been created by Charles Hobson who assembled the book with the assistance of Alice Shaw"--Colophon
