Gina Pierce History Maps wallpaper

History map detail

For something slightly more unusual for your walls, take a look at Gina Pierce's History Maps wallpaper.

We've featured her bags and textile designs before, which use layers of old maps to create a striking look. This wallpaper relies on exactly the same effect – the overlaid old maps giving a sense of the layers of history of a place. Add to this effect a choice of suitably aged colours: it's available in either grey, parchment or pink.  

The wallpaper is sold by the metre. Contact her through the website for more information on pricing.

You Are Here and May We Help You? – vintage-style London maps by Herb Lester Associates


Not just any old maps, these midcentury-inspired You Are Here and May We Help You? pocket-sized maps add a vintage twist, as well as an interesting twist in content.

Both feature illustration by Michael Newhouse, A3 folded to A6 and litho printed on recycled paper by Herb Lester Associates of London.

You Are Here (pictured over the page) pinpoints cool places to meet, chosen for their charm, for their convenience or simply because the compilers love them. May We Help You? focuses on 'London’s most useful suppliers' – sources for products and services ranging from rubber tubing to 18th-century lamps, Super 8 film to covered buttons, leather repairs to bookbinding. Copies are available online for £3, including postage.
