Welcome to archetypical
The visual encyclopedia
Standard encyclopedias tell us factual tidbits about the people, places, and things that we encounter every day, but often fail to capture their real “feel”. That’s why this project will try to catalog all the elements – sights, smells, sounds, tastes, and feels/experiences – of a given subject, even if they aren’t strictly objective, tangible, or easily defined.
These are the human archetypes and historical characters that truly define their category
These are the towns, cities, countries, and regions that have a special feel unique to them
This covers everything else, from sports to movies to architecture, and everything in between
