I love maps. I used to spend hours looking at the world atlas and dreaming up all the trips I would go on when I grew up. Whether or not you’re a map lover, though, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these hand cut maps by Karen O’Leary. She takes maps and painstakingly cuts away the land leaving the “paths, nodes, circles, boulevards, parks and streets” that give a city its character. Here are a few examples of Karen’s work from her Etsy store.
