The book-of-the-week for week 36 is a right angle double gatefold book titled WELCOME TO THE CITY! A variable edition of eight books was printed. Each book consists of a single sheet of cardstock laminated on both sides with a map and then letterpress printed with the poem. For the book shown in this week's post, a map of the area around Washington DC and Virginia is the background. Maps used for the other books include Delaware, coastal North Carolina, Durham North Carolina, and central Pennsylvania. The typeface used was 14-point Caslon Bold.
