Archie's Press Moon (Black/White)
A map of the moon!
Due to a lack of atmosphere, the moon welcomes all asteroids to smash into its surface, creating a fantastic texture. As our telescopic technology progressed, each teeny crater was named for an number of things, such as famous astrologers and Greek Gods.
I've selected the largest/most interestingly named craters to label, and given a nod to their multitude by including 100s others.
This is an accurate map based on a variety of source maps and documents.
Information is more fun to read when it's beautiful. I've designed these charts and maps with hours of research, reassembling data into a brain-friendly aesthetic. I edit the information significantly, avoiding the "dazzle" effect which occurs when our eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.
Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method that I am obsessed with. 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. Read more about letterpress printing here.
