"There are so many corners to this state that involve so many different kinds of people. My dream is to visit Falling Water, the Frank Lloyd Wright house far away in the western part of the state. It overhangs on a waterfall. Yes.
Personal notes: I loved visiting Erie on my trips cross-country. It's a strange city on the nub hitting lake Erie, right between New York State and Ohio. It's a wild town, where a tray of 12 beers in plastic cups costs $5." - 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.
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.
