“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. But before we ever landed on the moon, millions of asteroids slammed into it. Now each of those tiny craters has a name, as do the large “seas” that form the most recognizable shapes on the bright side of the moon.

Archie selected the largest/most interestingly named craters to label, and has given a nod to their multitude by including 100s others.

This is an accurate map based on a variety of source maps and documents.

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.
