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