I love maps. I've been looking for one to hang up in Ali's room; since we've moved his furniture around he has space on the wall for a biggish poster, and a map is something he won't grow out of too soon, and he'll hopefully enjoy since he has a fixation with his atlas right now*.
I finally chose this one from L'Affiche Moderne because I like the illustration style, the colours suit Ali's room and the shipping was reasonable (always a consideration when you live in Australia... I've wanted to buy this print forever, but the shipping is nearly as much as the print), but here are some other beauties I found on my search.
Papercut Map from Famille Summerbelle.
Beautiful modern hand screen-printed map from These are Things (this one comes in 4 colour ways)
Not so suitable for toddlers, but how cool are these customisable scratch maps? You rub off countries or cities as you visit them.
And I saw this beautiful coloured one at The Future Mapping Company when we were in London - they also do lovely London maps.
I can't wait til the print arrives and I can get it framed and hung on the wall! It's a standard size too, so framing should be quick and easy.
*Mark has accused me of decorating Ali's room with all the things I would really like to have in my own room but know he won't tolerate, like Flensted mobiles and Componibili bedside tables. He may have a point.
