Typographic Maps

From a distance or first glance you may notice something a bit funny about these maps. A closer inspection will reveal that the graphics are actually made entirely from type. It’s easy to assume that such a daunting task would have been delegated to a computer program, but you’d be quite wrong. Every word has been manually placed, a process that took hundreds of hours to complete. At the moment, Chicago and Boston boston are available. They are made and ordered to print through Zazzle, so prices start at $15 for a 11 x 16, all the way up to $195 for a monumental 52 x 78” poster.

Framework print

Shane from EveryGuyed emailed us about Framework, a series of posters highlighting the most iconic men’s eyewear of the last 100 years. Personally, I like the ‘Framework’ print (shown above) more than the individual posters, but that’s just me.

Gazelle and Rhino Wall Sculpture Trophies

So a modern version of trophy sculptures are not a new thing in decorating, and we’ve seen a few of them over the past few years, but what I like about these is that they are so supremely modern and minimal with their white finishes and come with a relatively small price tag considering some of the other versions out there.

Art+Culture Editions

Add another website to your list of (somewhat) affordable art. Art+Culture Editions features artists such as Nick Cave, Chuck Close, Vik Muniz, Eric Fischl, Sally Mann and more, with some prints starting around $50 for a 12″ x17″. I picked a more expensive one to feature above (sorry), but there’s more below that are priced at a lower range. Right now they’ve got a promotion going on that if you spend $100+, you get a free Gursky print. Not a bad deal.

Atlas Tapestry

It’s easy to be a sucker for a map graphics, and we’ve certainly featured a few items —Land Carpet, Haptic Lab Quilts, Magnetic Future Map, Places on Earth — on the blog before that would go well in any well traveled or geography nerd’s household. I’d like to add this new Atlas Tapestry from Urban Outfitters to this list, not because it’s particularly unique, but because it’s both incredibly affordable and versatile. Hang it on the wall, use it as a bedsheet, or use it for pretty much any fabric-related project you can think of.  Material is 100 percent cotton and is available in orange or blue.

Custom Bus Scrolls

Well, if you’ve had little luck finding a vintage bus sign with that specific city/stop, you might consider a custom one from TransitDesign. Sure, part of the charm of a bus scroll is the fact that it was at one time actually used, but seeing as they can get a little pricey and hard to find, maybe it’s worth bending the rules a little bit.
