Modern Map Art – The Solution to Boring Walls

I am always looking for interesting pieces of art and memorabilia to use to decorate our house. I mean, every single inch of wall space cannot be covered in kids art, no matter how much they think it should be!

I have always loved the look of old maps and vintage travel posters. The simple lines and bold graphics are very interesting to me. So when Jennifer from Modern Map Art contacted me about trying one of her prints, the hardest decision was which one! Do we get one from where we live, where we have visited, a country, a city–there are so many options!

Since I knew that this print was going to hang in my office, where I do all my work for Little Lake County, I decided to represent that and got a custom print of Lake County. The versatility of Modern Map Art is that you don’t have to just settle for the biggest or closest city to you. Want a map that focuses on Green Oaks, Illinois? They can do that! Want a map of the country you were born in? They can do that!

Being able to customize your art makes it a great gift for travelers or military families. Send your favorite soldier a print of home, sizes start at 8×10. Families can honor where they were stationed with a throw pillow of the city. Grandma and grandpa living somewhere else? Why not by a large map print and have it framed with a heart-shaped picture of their favorite grandkids? The possibilities are truly endless!

Jennifer describes Modern Map Arts designs as

elegant and modern, with a touch of nostalgia for anyone that has a connection to the city.

You can customize your map beyond the city with the colors and styles that you want. The print comes delivered in a tube so there was no damage in shipping. They are printed on heavy quality paper in fact if you have a lot of areas of water on your print, be careful not to touch it! You can easily scratch or smudge the color. Overall, I was really impressed with the speed of delivery and the quality of the piece and I love the addition to my office wall.
