Pretty Maps.

Dont you just love finding affordable art! Its so nice to finally be able to find unique pieces of art on places like Etsy and other similar websites.  The other day I was browsing through the new issue of Rue and I came across this lovely print by Aaron Straup Cope. The picture is of a map of Paris and I loved what the artists had to say about the inspiration behind it. Here is what he said..

"I'd like to generate map tiles that give you that same dizzy feeling you get when you look down at a city at night, from an airplane. We've spent so long fussing over the relentless details in cartography that we've sort of forgotten what things (should) look like at a distance".

You can purchase the prints HERE
