New York City is so big, it make a lot of sense to map it borough by borough. When looking at each borough, it's obvious just how much history and cultural diversity there is. Brooklyn is NYC's largest borough by population, and it has attracted so many ambitious people with a gorgeous multiplicity of backgrounds. Manifold influence has set upon this place, turning over and over, decade after decade. The structure came together as many different, smaller, villages converged, making it a great deal more complicated than Manhattan.
Have you noticed that frame shops never go out of business? There's a reason. It's a highly specialized skill that requires individual attention. I recommend using your local framer.
Alternatively, frameusa.com has standard sized frames with many options.
ABOUT LETTERPRESS PRINTING
Letterpress is a very complicated and expensive printing method that I am obsessed with. All Letterpress 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.
ABOUT THE IDEA
So why all the circles? Research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. My maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind" for each city, simplifying structures and districts in the simplest terms. Each design is taken as a new challenge, using the knowledge of locals to create a map that is both beautiful and useful.
