EXTRAordinary Maps

Ordinary people don't get very excited about maps. Well, I am not an ordinary person and neither are these maps:

A map designed by Lena Corwin for Purl Soho

More map loveliness by Anne Smith

Paris? Yes please. The Alice Tait Shop 

 A typographic marvel found here. Where's the Minneapolis version?

These are just a few of the maps I have stumbled upon recently and swooned over. I love the idea of maps as art. I wonder, what other ordinary items could become art? I'll keep my eyes open for inspiration.
