"It is not down in any map; true places never are." Evan Robertson"s impressionistic print celebrates this memorable line from Melville's Moby Dick. A world map becomes a Rorschach-like mirrored border, while the form of a compass points to directions truer than north, all framing Melville's geographic meditation on the authenticity of place. This original design rendered in archival ink on premium archival paper is a rare discovery for the literary-minded or wanderlust-afflicted. Designed in New York; printed in Pennsylvania.

Evan Robertson is a New York City-based designer who draws inspiration for original artwork from language and literature. Having studied literature and art history at Yale University, he's a word lover who makes things for fellow word lovers. All of his prints are meticulously crafted in the USA using the finest papers and materials.
