Oakland Letterpress Print

$24.00

"Pretty much everyone has been priced out of San Francisco, so now Oakland as the 4th highest rental market in the country. Seriously. Here are all the little pockets of the city. I worked with a committed local blacksmith and physicist named Persephone Karnstein on this one." -Archie

ABOUT THE IDEA
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.

ABOUT LETTERPRESS PRINTING
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.

FRAMING

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.
