France Map Letterpress Print


Letterpress Printed - Handmade

Bonjour mes amis! I took seven years of French and can say slightly more than this. The French use the term "L'Hexagonne" as a pet name for their European homeland. I'm not exactly sure who coined this phrase, but Le Courbousier, a famous French designer/artist, once made a sketchy drawing of France as a Hexagon, so maybe it was him. I haven't found another attempt to squeeze the regions, major cities and railroads into a cohesive hexigonal map, so we thought it might be a fun thing to try. Thanks very much to Xhulio Binjaku for the idea and David Hennessy for helping bring this to life. I think it looks great!
