Says Archie: One of the first intentionally-designed cities, the dark part of this map shows the original “L’enfant City”. Eventually it grew into a diamond shape, but Virginia seceded, and this is what we’re left with. The design of this neighborhood map is meant to be both beautiful and useful.

So Why All The Circles?
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.
Why We Love Archie's Press
Archie Archambault is a Brooklyn-based designer and inventor who started making maps because no one else explained cities simply and clearly. His maps are collectable, made to last and wonderful to work into gallery walls.
