I must admit, geometry was my favorite subject in high school. There's absolutely no vagaries in geometry. Everything refers to something in physical space that my tiny human mind could fully grasp. The alchemy of chemistry, the pointlessness of calculus and the invisibility of physics never trapped me like geometry. My teacher assigned us to read the book "Flatland", and asked us to write a sequal. I'm pretty sure that's the only A I got in high school.
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 eyes are battered with too much information. Letterpress makes it even more gorgeous.
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.
Your local frame shop is going to do a better job than anyone else. There's a reason this craft endures and cannot be automated: It's skilled work that is best done face-to-face in physical space.
