Archie's Press Print "Sushi"
The best sushi Ive ever had has been in Japan (unsurprisingly), literally anywhere. 7-11, a subway station, the fish market, a fancy omokase, it's all amazing.
The chart here explains the English and Japanese name of each fish, what's so special about them, its sustainability, and some other surprising/interesting facts that will affect how you think about Sushi.
A collaboration with Alli Miller, NYC-based artist.
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.
