Is There a ‘Map-p’ for That?

Imagine if you asked me for directions and I pulled out a suitcase-sized paper map. You’d be all, “Huh?”

It’s all about the internet these days, and as a result, many a map of the land are headed to the landfill. Artist Matthew Cusick, though, is saving a lucky few paper maps from a dump doomsday by using them to create crafty, cool collages!

    Maps are beautiful just the way they are (I can stare at them for hours), but this artist has taken their loveliness to a whole new level!

    Matt came to speak to my art history class a few years ago and he spoke about his technique and it is mind blowing! His work has only progressed and continued to become more and more beautiful.
