Hand-Designed Letterpress Maps

Electronic devices get us where we want to go, but often there’s a catch: We arrive at our destination with no understanding of the landscape as a whole.

Hand-designed letterpress maps by Archie’s Press make sense of urban environments in a uniquely human way. Minimalistic and simple, the maps use circles to depict relative landmark sizes and distance, displaying neighborhoods and districts in the manner a local might perceive them.

Destinations range from major U.S. and world cities to more whimsical, extraterrestrial locales like the moon. This frameable, inventive product allows travelers to inform or commemorate an important journey in a tangible and meaningful way—no batteries or cables required.
