Vintage Maps Make Me Want to Travel!
There’s something about a map that always looks like art to me. Right now, I’m in the process of planning my honeymoon and when I think about the cities we’re visiting, like Rome, Paris, or Florence, I’m reminded of their history, art, and culture, just by looking at their maps. Most of the maps I’ve found on eBay are reprints, but the quality is so perfected that it looks truly authentic and vintage. I am really into the idea of framing maps from around the world and hanging them down a hallway, or in a room (in a cluster) to remind you of the places you’ve been… or maybe the places you want to go. Though I would likely never hang a map that shows the battles, forts, or army plans, a map from any of the world wars or civil war would certainly make a great gift for a history buff. Or you can’t go wrong with a Parisian map for a student going to study abroad. I’m telling you: need a gift? Get a map!
