A couple of weekends ago, Matt and I stopped by the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn on a whim. Three hours later, we emerged, carrying the three letterpress maps above, beautifully designed and handmade by Archie’s Press, out of Portland, Oregon. I’ve always loved the idea of hanging up maps that represent the cities I’ve lived in—and love. Boston, San Francisco, and Brooklyn are a blend of the locations Matt and I have lived and still consider home.
Now, we were immediately sold on the look of these maps, but the deal was sealed when Archie himself explained: “My maps are made to fit Ikea frames.” Done and done. 🙂
Do you have any maps hanging in your home?

PS—How cool is his Solar System print?
