Says Archie: A simple map of Tokyo, describing the ring of the Yamanote line and all the station-named neighborhoods around it. Tokyo was actually designed to BE CONFUSING. The streets have no names (really) and they are mashed together in a baffling maze. At every subway station, there's an incredibly thorough map that explains the immediate area. Before phones, these were essential for anyone finding anything ever.

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.
