“I bought an antique sign press at an antique store. I found a stack of antique atlases the very next day at an estate sale. I heard You Can Go Your Own Way on the radio on the way home and it was one of those giant light bulb moments,” says Minnesota-based artist Amy Rice of her music-inspired letterpress prints. “I had been painting on and with antique maps, atlases and globes for a few years, exploring direction, and so this series of song lyrics about direction on antique atlas pages has been a neat addition to my more painterly work.” Even those with no sense of direction would have to agree.
