Sea of Stupid

Grayson Perry's "Map of an Englishman" is just one of the most amazing print pieces I've seen. I wish I had a great scan of it, just to spend hours and hours traveling the mountains of Despair, the villages of Anger, Hate, Spite, crossing the rivers of unloved, unwanted and of course uninspired, to end up in the sea of stupid.
Ok so I dont remember all these places, I'm sure the map is very different and I'm just projecting (!) I saw it in full scale at Perry's Victoria Miro show two years ago. He was there with all his fabulous tranny entourage.

Mr. Angelidakis, just happened upon your blog in my research about where to obtain a copy print of the indeed much admired "Map of an Englishman" in full size. Should I find a source, wish me to let you know?

I recently saw this amazing piece at the MOMA and would love any info on where to obtain a print.

Just saw it at the MOMA - what a hoot! I actually inquired at the Museum Shop about a print, but no such luck. I'll keep hoping - if he were to make relatively inexpensive offset prints, he'd definitely find a market for them.

An artist's proof is currently on display in the British Museum in gallery 90. I'd like to know where to obtain a print too.
