Our passion project

 

Celebrate nature’s small beauties with a print from The Printed Walk: Georgia to Maine, a letterpress-printed chronicle of one woman’s 2017 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.

 

 

the project

The Printed Walk: Georgia to Maine began in the Fall of 2016 with a successful Kickstarter campaign. The campaign funded the Appalachian Trail thru-hike and the raw materials for the project. Lindsay hiked the entirety of the 2,190-mile trail from March 25, 2017 to September 11, 2017, treating her hike as a walking meditation and scavenger hunt, discovering inspiration in the small natural beauties along the trail.

Upon her return home to Gingerly Press, Lindsay designed and printed 22 posters, one for every 100 miles of the trail, celebrating the small beauties she discovered on her hike. Each design sizes at 14 x 18”, was produced in a signed limited edition of 70 prints, and includes the correlating written story, hiking statistics, and elevation map printed on the reverse.
