i know i have posted about maps before (like here and here), but they are so pretty and fascinating and i will never get sick of them, so here are even more. i just read a great article about all kinds of unusual and beautiful maps, which includes background information and other interesting facts.

I love maps! I used to decorate my closet with all of the maps from amusement parks and vacations when I was younger. The ones you've found are so beautiful.

Very cool map. I once bought my dad a book that consisted of maps made for an imaginary world. It was so cool. Can't remember the name, but I picked it up at the Tate Modern in London and it was by a couple dutch cartographers.
