Maps mounted as wall art are nothing new. Some are vintage, a la pull-down classroom maps. Others are made to look old and weathered. Some are accurate and to scale; others are snarkily reconfigured. But never has making and ordering a custom map been easier than GrafoMap.
Made to transform maps into graphic form (minus the street labels and other literal-minded stuff that make real maps less artistic), the GrafoMap is meant for poster-ing.
Tap in any location: your hometown neighborhood, the church where your parents married, the city you’re planning to visit next year or else.
Zoom in or out, choose from a color scheme that makes your map more abstract, or less. Add text tagging the location (or let them guess.) Order a print.
Hang the places you love at eye level, and let your mind wander. $49 for an 18-by-24 inch map print. To order, visit grafomap.com.
