This map was built in collaboration with Tony Marostica, Idaho native and Idaho explorer. Most of the state isn't developed, leaving a vast landscape of natural wonders. I love the way Idaho sort of "Hugs" Montana, leaving us with one of the most interesting and recognizable state shapes.�

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 printinghere.
