I don't know if you are familiar with 20X200 but if you aren't you should be. Their basic model is this:  (limited editions × low prices) + the internet = art for everyone. So for 20 bucks you can buy an original piece of art by a fairly unknown artist that is only 1 of 200 printed. The artist featured today caught my eye so I thought I'd share him with you.  Aaron Straup Cope has created these limited edition map prints using  prettymaps, an experimental map from Stamen Design. 


You can actually use the software yourself and see your own city through Prettymaps itself. It is fun to play with but unfortunately you can't save the image you create (which is a bit of a bummer) but it will definitely keep you busy for a while. 

Work is getting in the way of our kitchen but hopefully I'll have some real progress to show you soon. For now I just keep staring at my tile and trying to imagine the finished product. 

P.S. 20X200 didn't pay me for this, I just like the art. 


  1. Cute! I've looked into getting one of these, maybe some day!

  2. I love 20X200. They really have great prints options. Love the map idea.
