wonderful. did you get the map when on a trip?
i'm going to prague soon and this looks like a nice way to commemorate a voyage

I was in Praha in April and was thinking the same thing about my well-worn map from that trip!  And also my Paris map from a few years ago.  I like the idea of the worn spots and such showing up.  Please share if you do it!

hey! you have my city (Alicante) on your coffee table! Cheesy

i love it, absolutely. i have two small tables on the living room and i don't know what to do with them because the tops are scratched and such. this might be a great idea, i could put my two favourite cities on the tables...

may i ask if you fixed the map with white glue and then put varnish? or? i'd LOVE to give this a try!!

excellent work I too am curious about the details of how you made this. I'm going to keep this in the back on my mind, seeing as how I have several unused maps and a  coffee table chillin' in my closet (we're using my roommate's one since mine is smaller and easier to store).

Fantastic idea! This is going on my mental 'to-do with thrift store maps' list along with map covered journals Smiley
