Here is one piece of advice for anyone visiting this old and mysterious city: Find a bike. The city is extremely navigable and accessible when you have some wheels. The public transport is very confusing compared with Tokyo, so you're better off getting a feel for the city on some wheels. Plus, it's a grid, unlike anywhere else in Japan, so it's conceivably navigable without the aid of a GPS.

ABOUT THE IDEA

Information is more fun to read when it's beautiful. Archie designed these charts and maps with hours of research, reassembling data into a brain-friendly aesthetic. The information is edited significantly, avoiding the "dazzle" effect which occurs when our eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.

ABOUT LETTERPRESS PRINTING

Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method. All letterpress prints are slammed with 600 pounds of pressure, creating a deep, tactile texture. The ink gets embedded into the thick soft paper so it won't fade within your lifetime.

FRAMING
Your local frame shop is going to do a better job than anyone else. There's a reason this craft endures and cannot be automated: It's skilled work that is best done face-to-face in physical space.
