decorating with maps

May 11, 2011

Maps fascinate me. I think it’s the awareness that our  world is so big — and knowing that there is so much more to see and experience out there than just my tiny pinhole of space.

I also think that maps make beautiful art. There are so many varieties out there and a plethora of ways to use them to decorate with. Here are a few of my favorites.

… in my neighborhood.  I love when art like this just pops up out of nowhere. When did they do it? I just imagine someone at 3am sitting on the sidewalk having a cup of tea (and a shot of Jameson) lovingly knitting this bike rack.

Thank you!
