"The French use the term "L'Hexagonne" as a pet name for their European homeland. I'm not exactly sure who coined this phrase, but Le Courbousier, a famous French designer/artist, once made a sketchy drawing of France as a Hexagon, so maybe it was him. I haven't found another attempt to squeeze the regions, major cities and railroads into a cohesive hexigonal map, so we thought it might be a fun thing to try.

Thanks very much to Xhulio Binjaku for the idea and David Hennessy for helping bring this to life. I think it looks great!"

About Archie's Press: Archie Archambault is a designer and printer living in New York. While he was living in Portland, he got lost a lot. The best way to get un-lost is draw a map, and when he drew a circular map of Portland, Archie's Press was born. The idea unfolded into many other maps of different subjects, showing their structures in simple and intuitive ways. Everything is letterpress printed with a deep tactile impression.
