Map Prints by Annie Bissett

Artist Annie Bissett's Map Print series are speaking to me right now.  She says this about her process :
Many of these woodblock prints begin with a wide-angle look via Google Earth at some of the world's most charged places. Over carved topographies, I then layer images, culled from both historical and modern sources, that begin to tell the complicated stories of how human beings have impacted the land and each other in these geographies.
