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 archetypes, historical characters, and unique individuals that truly embody a certain category
Towns, cities, and regions that have a special feel to them where you can find a real unique sense of place
Everything from sports teams to movie trilogies to architecture- these things have a feel all their own
