World Maps


At the moment, I am on the lookout for a good looking world map to hang up in our flat. We have family and friends spread all over the world and my 5-year-old, Coco, is trying to understand where everyone is. But the main reason is that I have a huge love for maps — they make me dream and plan lots of adventures. About 99% of those plans stay in my head, but I have the best time planning anyway.

So far I have found this lovely map by Famille Summerbelle which Courtney blogged about a while ago and this great design by Oliver Jeffers. I already have a set of 1950’s French school maps which I love (though though they are not very accurate anymore). If anyone has any other suggestions, do let me know!

Hi Emilie,

Another lover of maps/globes here!

The one from IKEA isn’t bad:

Check out ‘Kate Anniss’ in the online gallery at Porcupine Prints, a new Illustrated World Map poster!

Emilie,

Check out Telegram Paper Goods in Australia. They have a great world map I’m currently coveting…

I love all of these maps. Never knew world maps would be so expensive though! But it’s a lovely and educative decoration for a room I find… (And it’s true, my kids are constantly confused about topography — at the end of the street they ask if they’re still in the Netherlands!)

My 5 year old son is obsessed with countries and flags. Father Christmas bought him a cool magnetic map which he can take apart and reassemble from Great Little Trading Company.

Thanks for all the tips, Sally, I especially LOVE the Telegram World Maps. They are pricey but really lovely.

There is a danish artist who has made a world map from topography that is very beautiful. You can find it on facebook under The World. Her name is Sisse Falkonberg Jonsen.
