I spent hours poring over Star Charts to nail this one. Each constellation is composed of variously lit stars, bring the heavens in balance. This is the simplest chart that I could make and I couldn't find anything so raw and simple anywhere else online.
Notice also the Months written on the outside. That indicates the orientation of "north" for each season.
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. We 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 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.
ABOUT THE IDEA
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 brains are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.
