We had maps in many forms and tastes: San Francisco in jell-o or New York in Lego or a Subway Map as Bathroom Tiling.

Karen O'Leary has another take: cutting out streets out of large blank sheets of paper, or cutting out the streets from real street maps, all by hand. Maps already sold include Paris, London and New York.

Conceptually, the unique maps remove the unnecessary, leaving valuable information to navigate the main defining paths of the city. All city blocks are cut by hand to reveal the paths, nodes, circles, boulevards, parks and streets of each of the cities.

Two words: paper cut

I'd like to know how many X-Acto blades this project required! ;)
