Maps are everywhere these days, and I absolutely love it! Check out this amazing map of Europe made out of a pile of clothes (Italy = “boot”) by Corriette Schoenaerts that Danielle posted on Style Files yesterday.
AceJet 170 always has an amazing collection of found items- signs, type, stamps, books and maps that make you want to travel to a time and place that was well designed.
And last week Victoria had a great post about maps as a trend in interior design on SFGirlbybay.
A little further research and I came across this wonderful Festival of Maps happening in Chicago in November. It’s a citywide celebration of exploration, discovery and mapping that involves the collaboration of more than 30 cultural and scientific institutions. If you can’t make it to Chicago for the actual event, be sure to checkout their interactive website and blog.
P.S. Great new Design*Sponge design guide for Boston is out! Stay tuned for Chicago coming soon. [These guides provide great shopping and design savvy stops.]
