Archie spent hours poring over Star Charts to nail this one. Each constellation is composed of variously lit stars, bring the heavens in balance. This is the simplest chart of the Southern Sky that could be made and there is nothing as raw and simple anywhere else online.

Notice also the months written on the outside. That indicates the orientation of "north" for each season.

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.

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.
