If ever there were map porn...

MouthToSource is right. This is it. I first discovered this map on Apartment Therapy on Maxwell's post, 10 things you need to know about AT, Part 4-My path has been twisty and turny

You know there's this map/wall decor thing going on in the design world, and this just takes the beauty of maps one step further. Talk about art and cartography singing and dancing together.

The Mississippi Meander Maps. There are more than one, and you can download them here or here.


According to Mouth to Source, these are from the Geological Investigation of the Alluvial Valley of the Lower Mississippi River – Fisk, 1944


More background info can be found under the above links.



I am so taken by these images. Holy map art. These would look fantastic on that really large and unadorned wall above the play room sofa. :)
