You can find instructions for covering your own book here.

Vintage maps make beautiful wrapping paper!

In our map display, we strung vintage topographic maps across the wall using clothes pins and string.  These maps would also look beautiful framed or used as wallpaper.

Paper hearts make wonderful love notes!

Some folded and rolled vintage maps for sale at the shop.
These maps are only $1 each!
What crafty ideas can you think of for displaying and using these beautiful vintage maps?
