Paris Letterpress Print by Archie's Press

Says Archie: Sacré Bleu! C'est Magnifique! Possibly the most legendary city in the world, it also fits pretty nicely into a circle. This map is based on my explorations, along with help from people who have lived in the city for years. It's meant to offer a "mental picture" of the city, creating an immediate nostalgic understanding for old timers and a helpful navigation tool for newcomers.
  • Letterpress printed
  • 100% cotton Crane's Lettra® paper - it's the (really) good stuff
  • Size: 8" x 8"

So Why All The Circles?
New research indicates that GPS's 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.

Get to Know the Maker: Archie Archambault

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.

He studied Art and Philosophy at Colorado College, Urban Design at Harvard and Advertising at Wieden+Kennedy. We think he's the coolest.
