A few words for the new year. x
Maps have always been interesting to look through with all their fine details and etchings, especially if they’re old. Crumpled City Maps are a revamped travel-proof version of the age old weathered maps with frayed yellow edges. The entire collection is for kids and features fun attractions for younger tourists. Light and 100% waterproof it comes in 5 cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, London, New York and Paris. Emanuele Pizzolorusso worked with Italian-based Alvvino who In addition to illustrating the maps also designed the packaging for it. Find them here!
Facts and doodles. So simple, yet so addictive and just plain fun.
Brought to you by the creatives of Young, this self-initiated project was launched in August 2009,. Facts were submitted by visitors and a new doodle was put up every day. Within two weeks of launching the site, over 10,000 visitors from all over the world learnt something new every day.
I’ve checked it every day since I found the site and was sad to find out during their last few days that they gave other artists a chance to illustrate facts since the site would not be continuing any longer. They do however have a book out compiling all the factoids and fun doodles.
