The most beautiful place I've ever been. My sister wanted a destination wedding, so everyone hauled down for five days of bliss. We stayed on St. John, but rented a boat and cruised around to a few of the other islands. My favorite was Jost van Dyke, a tiny island with a few shacks selling "pain killers". A delicious concoction of run, coconut, orange and pineapple juice, sprinkled with nutmeg. It's the best.

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.

FRAMING
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.
