Book of Treasured Maps

6 Jun

I recently ordered this book by Lena Corwin specifically to use her hand drawn maps as art for the kids’ room.  This weekend I finally had the chance to get them up on the wall.

I love Lena’s gentle use of color.  It is perfect for a kids room and the maps will inspire them to ask questions and learn more about cities other than their own.  Plus, repeating the similarly styled, yet different, maps all the way around the room, makes it appear put together, cohesive and designed.

Have you ever used a book as a source for art in your home?  Calendars also work well for this purpose.  Have you ever recycled an old calendar as wall art?
