Looking for a map that fits into a modernist decor but one that's also geographically up-to-date? Well, that's the exact challenge that faced graphic designers Jen Adrion and Omar Noory and led them to form These Are Things who create great retro-styled maps

The maps clearly draw their influence from late 1950s/early 60s design in both their typography and colour scheme, handily just not in the naming of places or drawing of boundaries. Their map of Europe is pictured and they also produce a world map and one of the United States with a similar look. Each design is hand screen-printed and carries off that rare combination of being educationally, geographically and aesthetically sound!

The map of Europe costs $40.
