Local Landscape

It’s easy to get disoriented in a new place, and even easier to rely on GPS to get you from point A to B. With Archie’s Press letterpress maps, you can learn the layout of an entire city in a simple, holistic way.

For centuries, people have had to learn new areas by memorizing landmarks. Now we just pull out our phones and follow the directions, no brain function required. New research indicates that GPS hinders our ability to create our own mental maps, and that we learn less about our surroundings.

Founder Archie Archambault hand-designs beautifully minimalistic city maps. Using simple circles, he depicts relative landmark sizes and distance. Archie intends to give a well-rounded, uncomplicated image of a city the way locals understand it, showing not only notable places but neighborhoods and districts as well.

Each map is created by hand on a printing press. Ideal for people exploring a new city, these maps can also make a beautiful keepsake from the cities you’ve visited or called home.
