i stumbled across this amazing etsy shop a couple of weeks ago and just had to share! karen o'leary creates stunning hand cut map art and i am completely smitten with her work.
karen also sells more affordable city map prints, which are terrific. (in fact, i may or may not have just bought one as a gift.)
paris, rome, manhattan
be sure to check out her blog and this great set on flickr, showing her process for making map cuts. extraordinary!
p.s. look for some of her work in the latest west elm catalog, too!
