The crew at www.modernmapart.com contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing one of their city map prints for our dear old Pittsburgh and I told them to bring it on. Some of my favorite hobbies including embracing city of Pittsburgh and collecting prints and posters that hang out for years waiting to be framed.
Modern Map Art sent me an 18" x 24" white and black print so that I could scope it out and tell you all about it. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the piece. The print is very crisp and as far as I can tell, navigationally accurate. It fit perfectly into a black Ikea frame I had hanging around and works nicely in there without a mat, although at some point I may elevate it and do it properly.
Right now, it's hanging out in my bedroom with another print waiting to find a permanent home.
I scoped out some other maps on their site, which are plentiful, and was pleased to see that they had a Kentucky Blue version for Lexington (#BBN). There were also some good ski valley maps if you're in to that sort of thing.
I think it would be cool to mark our house or some of our favorite spots on the map with a pin or marker. All in all, a solid product that would make an excellent gift or addition to your blank canvas. Thanks to Modern Map Art for the opportunity to review!
