My first introduction to the world of maps was this magnificent wooden globe, placed in my father’s office. The times when it became impossible to understand the trade-winds route or memorize the landmarks and seas, I’d turn to this globe for help and learn it all up in a jiffy. Times have changed now and affording one of those antique globes is just a far fetched dream. However a contemporary and kitsch take on the maps is here in the form of the Color Maps. They come in four sweet themes: Midnight, Chocolate, City Lights and Pop Color Maps.
