Each poster in the six-part series depicts the major drainage divides of a continent, and you can read more (and see detailed photos) by going to

These posters are hand-printed using sunlight, and the process turns out a little different each time, so you can expect some variations from the photos. There are occasional dark spots in the unbleached paper; there may be small wrinkles; the color may be a little lighter or darker. These are part of the unique, individual character of each print. Sizes may vary by a few millimeters, as the paper shrinks upon drying. These are handmade art prints, not intended to be perfect, uniform products.

Delivery may take some time, and your patience is appreciated! I keep some prints on-hand for immediate shipment, but each print is a bit time-consuming to make, and can only be done in the right weather conditions. I will contact you if I anticipate significant delays. Please email me at [email protected] with any questions.

Shipping outside of the United States may take several weeks. More expedited shipping is available for an extra fee; please email me if you are interested. Cost will vary by country but is typically in the range of $40 to $60.
