“The 50 States of Europe” letterpress map print (American States transposed onto the European Continent) was executed from the idea that many Americans have no idea how far or close countries in Europe are and likewise many Europeans do not realize how vast the United States is. The approximate land masses of each state and each country were compared and paired up to form this fictional landscape resembling a vintage map.
