"I explored Kyoto this year and have one piece of advice for anyone visiting this old and mysterious city: Find a bike. The city is extremely navigable and accessible when you have some wheels. The public transport is very confusing confusing compared with Tokyo, so you're better off getting a feel for city on some wheels. Plus, it's a grid, unlike anywhere else in Japan, so it's conceivably navigable without the aid of a GPS. " -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.
