Notes:
Fold-out map of the universe with legend or key showing "unusual landmarks".
"The map is meant to detail absolutely everything and therefore it is impossible. It makes fun of our attempt to rule everything by documentation. Using maps as a starting point I was able to pull out details to add interest to it, like the legends. This map is clearly absurd but at the same time very useful."--From information provided by the artist (1st edition).
