Pretty Things: Maps

When @rougebert tweeted about a wee gem of a map he’d just bought, I had to check it out. After all, having not long moved to Glasgow and with an apparently growing interest in maps, it sounded like something I could benefit from. Turns out there were other maps too, and I ended up buying “How To Find Old New York” and “It’s Nice To Be Alone In Paris”. Funnily enough, Paris has been on my mind a lot lately. As mentioned in my last post, I’m eager to take a break somewhere in Europe, and with Paris being a city I’ve never visited as an adult as well as being so close to Britain, it’s likely to happen at some point soon.

    They are well cool.

    You will love Paris, I got engaged there a couple of years ago, just don’t go at New Year, it’s not even funny how cold it is, especially after a 2 hour wait at Disney on Hogmany to get on a ride, all outside.

    I saw those map designs via dribbble – it’s awesome! The style is fantastic, I’m contemplating on buying the Glasgow one, it’s really nice. 🙂

    Those would be awesome to frame!

    Two questions.

    How much big are the maps?

    Have you ever considered a trip to Venezia?
