Coming to the shop this week are three new prints we’re super duper excited about!! They are letterpress maps of Manhattan, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
Each print has been carefully researched, designed and then letterpressed by hand with black ink on beautiful thick white paper by our friend, and fellow Pacific Northwesterner Archie Archibald of Archie’s Press. (Note – the Seattle print also comes in blue ink and red ink!)
Manhattan holds a special place in my heart as I spent over a month there one summer working for Scarlett Johansson as her assistant, and it is one I will never forget! And Los Angeles… well, I lived the majority of my adult life there and it will always be my second home. (And I think I lived in about 20 of the circles on this map!)
And I just love this video of Archie’s and his process. So much love and energy go into letterpress. Enjoy!
P.S. He makes these maps of tons of other cities! If there is one you’re looking for, let me know and we can see if it’s available.
