"The concentric canals of Amsterdam form a perfect structure to for the Archie's Press sentiment (in fact, this was the second map I ever made and probably influenced my use of circles). I spent a summer in the city when I was 23, totally broke, exploring the ancient cobblestoned streets on a borrowed bike, living in a borrowed apartment. I ended up having some of the most memorable experiences of my life here, and love going back to see the grachts." -Archie

Information is more fun to read when it's beautiful. These charts and maps are designed with hours of research, reassembling data into a brain-friendly aesthetic. The information is edited significantly, avoiding the "dazzle" effect which occurs when our eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.

Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method that I am obsessed with. All letterpress prints are slammed with 600 pounds of pressure, creating a deep, tactile texture. The ink gets embedded into the thick soft paper so it won't fade within your lifetime.


Your local frame shop is going to do a better job than anyone else. There's a reason this craft endures and cannot be automated: It's skilled work that is best done face-to-face in physical space.
