my mister loves maps. he uses them to plan his route for bike rides and loves to weave together all of the little connected back roads that he never knew existed. we have a large map hanging over our desk and most afternoons we'll meet there so i can learn about his planned adventure. he likes them so he can 'study the land' (what a guy-thing). i like them because they bring a certain kind of 'smart' look to an area (what a girl-thing). when i saw jason laferrera's take on maps over at design*sponge yesterday, i knew i wanted to make sure you didn't miss them! he takes historical maps and pieces them together to make these woodland wonders. how beautiful!
