My love for maps


If I should tell you one thing about me, you should know that I love traveling the world. Seeing new places, getting to know new cultures and meet interesting people, I simply can’t get enough of it. There are so many beautiful places I would like to visit one day that I often daydream about it (drooling at pictures on Pinterest as well). As a profound lover of travel I’m always on the look-out for some pretty looking maps. This week my eye fell on several foldout maps of big cities. These maps are foldout guides made by different designers from all over the world for Herb Lester. For example there are maps of Copenhagen, Berlin, London and New York. Have a look at Herb Lester for the complete collection.

In december ’12/january ’13 I was in New York. The first 10 days of the trip were spend in Park Slope, a great neighbourhood in Brooklyn which happens to be full of hipsters. It was there and then that I started to develop a deep love for Brooklyn. When I saw the Herb Lester fold out map of Brooklyn, designed by the New York based Two Arms Inc., I knew that was the one that I had to bring home.
