Colorado State Letterpress Print by Archie's Press
Says Archie: I spent my college years exploring the rugged peaks and pristine valleys of Colorado. The toughest hike I ever did was Pikes Peak, a 24-mile haul that left me blistered and hungry. The scariest moment I ever had was trudging through Independence Pass, between Leadville and Aspen, one of the scariest and most dangerous roads in the world. I love this mile-high state.

New research indicates that GPSs are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. Archie's 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.
