Another silk escape map arrived yesterday – this one is of Helsinki and Trondheim and from 1953, showing lots of water in the landscape. The nearest thing perhaps to the silk maps I’m making for the Macclesfield show.

I expected silk escape maps to feel smooth and silky, but instead they feel like a combination of waxy and chalky somehow. I was expecting them to be printed like a silk scarf would be, dying the fabric, but instead they have a surface on the silk that the map is printed onto so that it can be double sided.

The ex-military white silk parachute that I ordered also arrived…
