I’m so attracted to maps, both for the actual use (navigation) and for their design and craft aesthetic. Obviously I’m not alone in this, as maps have been decoupaged on everything from coasters to lampshades. But these crafts, like this amazing map dress by Elisabeth Lecourt, are taking maps to new destinations…sorry, it had to be said!
This could be a very cool abstract embroidered design, but it’s actually the Paris Metro system. By Needle & Compass on Etsy.
I love the link between transportation and navigation with this folded paper map boat by d. Sharp Journal.
A travel scrapbook made with map pages? Yes. Found via Scrapbook.com.
Ok, so I’m ending with the decoupaged map chair found via Pins for Your Home because I just love it.
