Type Maps by Bold & Noble – chart your own adventures…

In the world of interior design & decoration there are two things I am always on the hunt for on my travels…
Anything to do with Cartography & Typography.

 

Maybe it’s the nomadic traveller in me but there is something about maps which I find fascinating. I love maps that depict the places I have been – I think it is the visual reminder that allows me to relive the adventures I have had.

They are like some amazing word puzzle. Each place name is in its geographical position in a font size that varies according to the relevant size. Each map is designed by this talented team and handmade using hand mixed inks on 100% recycled card.

Unlike painting and other pictures, maps are a much more subtle decoration. Rich in detail, they draw you in to reveal their secrets.

I am fairly confident in a past life I was a pirate. There is one letter more than any other I like to see on a chart…
X”, sets my pulse racing…

 

X marks the spot…

 

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain, author (1835-1910)
