Map Questing

This interactive artwork by Oliver Jeffers offers a unique way for you to map your travels around the United States. The image is a print of a rustic map that Jeffers painted and lettered, in shades of blue and turquoise, onto a background of reclaimed wood. It's printed onto high quality paper and is signed by the artist. For a unique, "library chic" appeal, the artwork comes with sturdy binder clips for hanging. Also included is a tin of 102 round-headed pins--100 orange pins, a red one for your home location, and a blue one to mark your next adventure, your birthplace, the location of a loved one, or whatever you desire. Made in Brooklyn, NY.

    Comments about PLACES IN AMERICA WALL ART:

    This is not just a map, it definitely falls into the "work of art" category. I love the design and the size. Although it didn't bother me, some people may be unhappy that Alaska and Hawaii are only represented by an arrow.

        It is vibrant but much smaller than we were expecting. Be sure and read dimensions as we dI'd not. It looks like it would be larger.not worth the price.

          Our family loves maps. This looks great in my husband's office and he can mark where he's been and where he wants to visit. Very cool idea and fun conversation piece!

            I bought this for myself and my husband since we are big travelers. I thought this would be an awesome way to display where we've been and where we want to go. Like another reviewer said, the "reclaimed wood canvas" is SO realistic online (and in the catalog) that I didn't realize that I'd be getting only a print.

            Because it's only a print, you can't just stick the pushpins in it. So, I went to a craft store and bought a roll of cork board, and cut it to the exact size of the print, and clipped it to the back. Works great.

            My only other issues with this: Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, DC, and the teritories (Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, Guam, etc) are not on the map, which is pretty disappointing, consdiering those are places that we'd like to mark on our map.

            That being said, the colors are vibrant and gorgeous and the printing is done so well. It truly is a piece of art. I just wish it was more "ready to use" out of the gate, vs. having to purchase more items to make it work.

              Comments about PLACES IN AMERICA WALL ART:

              Bought this for my husband. We recently began traveling around the States, and after our last trip through the South, he mentioned he wanted to get a map so that we could keep track of where we've been. I thought this map would be push-pin ready, but it's not. It needs to be mounted on corkboard, laminated, etc. Description stating "reclaimed wood canvas" is misleading, since I thought it would have some sort of thickness/substance to it so that you could push the pins in without some sort of backing. Also, size stated is not the size of the actual map but the map and the white border. Taking it to a framing shop to see what kind of matting/frame this can be adhered to. Would like to display on the mantel of fireplace, since the piece is a lovely piece of art.

                    I'm using this as a Family Story, pinning where we met, where we've moved to and vacations. I'm including written tags in the white margin to describe our family adventures. I think my whole family will enjoy it. I love the quality of the paper and the vivid colors.
