"The French use the term "L'Hexagonne" as a pet name for their European homeland. I'm not exactly sure who coined this phrase, but Le Courbousier, a famous French designer/artist, once made a sketchy drawing of France as a Hexagon, so maybe it was him. I haven't found another attempt to squeeze the regions, major cities and railroads into a cohesive hexigonal map, so we thought it might be a fun thing to try." - 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.
