At a poster sale before Christmas I found this print [below] and snapped up one for me and one for my sister. I love it so much! I don't think it's possible to enlarge the images since I couldn't find any large versions [I guess artists have to take precautions so people don't copy and print their stuff... sad.] But anyways it's lived happily amongst my eclectic collection of wall art, including this great print Megan got me, this antique map from my mom of my home city, and countless other handmade frames and bits. Mostly awesome gifts cause my people know me so well [you's guys are the best]!
But what's the reason for this post?? I DISCOVERED THERE ARE MORE MAPS! Yes! It's true! Take a look at their supreme cuteness. The artist is Britain-based Alice Tait and I think she's genius. I love how each neighborhood or area has its own little style. They might verge a bit on the touristy side, yes, but seriously that does not detract from the design! Even if I were local to one of these cities [ahem.. WHEN I am local...] I wouldn't mind having them up.
So, what do we think? Have I gone off the deep end of cliché and twee, or do you love them too? I mean I'm only asking to be polite really... cause my mind is definitely made up. :)
