Details

An 17.5" x 17.5" screenprinted map of Philly, broken into these parts: N, NE, NW, W, SW, S and Center City. Archie Press describes our hometown as "a really laissez-faire town with barstools at the window of cocktail lounges." 

Black ink on white. 

SO WHY ALL THE CIRCLES?

New research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. Archie Press maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind", simplifying structures and neighborhoods in the most efficient and beautiful way. The circle, our Universe's softest shape, is the clearest graphic to convey size and connection.

THE STORY

Archie Archambault is a designer and inventor living between Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn, New York. He started making maps several years ago because nobody else was explaining cities simply and clearly.

PROCESS

Archie visits each city to experience it as a local does. For instance, in Amsterdam he rode a bike and in Los Angeles he drove a car. After discussing and drafting with residents, Archie prints the map on a 19th century letterpress. A simple and perfect map produced on a simple and perfect machine.
