About The Itinerant Printer

Each print became an index of his time there, as well as an index of what the shop had in their collection. The trip continues unofficially to this day. To date he’s covered over 75,000miles, made over 20,000 prints with over 60,000 impressions, visited over 150 print shops, and taken over 30,000 photographs to document the journey.
