Maybe its because I’m longing for a good holiday or perhaps its just that I love the colours and endless possibilities of maps but I’ve been seeing them all over the place recently. This image forms part of a collection of maps belonging to designer Benita Larson via Poppytalk. I love the way they are displayed and that some have being put to good use covering journals, books and boxes.
A quick Etsy search brings up lots of interesting uses for old maps among my favourites are these Custom Map Pendants by XOHandworks.
Map Paper Birds by Cotton Bird Designs.
And body part Collages by Selflesh.
