Yes, we’re all really into maps right now. I didn’t think I could take another iteration of the map trend, but then this little company caught my eye. City Prints takes the typical university campus map and turns it into a work of art. Husband-and-wife team Tony and Katie Rodono use bold colors and striking contrast to create these graphic prints.

Anyone who attended my alma mater, James Madison University, knows (and loves) their Mappy. Maybe it’s the nostalgia, but I’m seriously considering splurging on a custom map of JMU (because, sadly, they do not offer it). Or I could just dig up my Mappy from my closet — yes, of course I saved it — and attempt to create my own map art.

Today on Fab.com, City Prints is offering a few of their maps at a great discounted price — $28 + shipping. Hurry over to grab one before they sell out, as I’m sure they will!

Any other Dukes out there still have their Mappy?

    Hi Lane,

    Thanks so much for the post! The response to our first sale has been overwhelming and we really appreciate talented and creative people like yourself sharing their thoughts.

    I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know that we are currently developing 20+ new map prints including JMU. I’d love to send you one when it’s done. Please drop me an email with your email and mailing address and we’ll make it happen.

    Talk soon,
    Tony
