Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow


You know the drill now, we love the Herb Lester maps, both the design and the fine array of places they flag up. This Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow looks like another winner for the company.

As ever, it's a map of the usual and the unusual – so expect record shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and inevitably a fish and chip shop – albeit one with an opera-singing proprietor. There are also glorious parks, beautiful architecture and great food and drink – like an unchanged 1960s pub, the Glasgow Architectural Salvage Yard, an art deco restaurant and oyster bar (Rogano) and to top things off, an excellent record shop (Monorail).

The map is designed and illustrated by Brent Couchman, is A3-sized(297 x 420mm) and litho printed in England on recycled paper. A bargain at just £3. Another shot over the page.

Herb Lester vintage-style Paris Map by Lord Dunsby


We have featured the vintage-syle Herb Lester city maps in the past, but we think It's Nice To Be Alone In Paris is the best one yet.

For a start, it's by one of our favourite illustrators, Lord Dunsby and also, because it's about Paris, one of our favourite city to spends days wandering around. This map flags up some pretty leftfield things to do as well, 32 in total, including a taxidermist extraordinaire, mint tea at the Grand Mosque, found photographs at Images & Portraits, along with places to eat, swim, drink, buy vintage 'gentlemen's imagery' and enjoy a solitary ice cream. In short, something for everyone.

It's an A3 (297x420mm) map, folded to A6 (105x148mm) and litho printed on recycled paper. As ever, ridiculously cheap at just £3.
