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.

There's a nostalgic feel running through Jigsaw's Spring homeware range, as typified by this London postcard cushion.
Looking like it's been inspired by a vintage souvenir scarf, it's decorated with black and white vignettes of some of London's most famous buildings, such as Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace.
Made from cotton, it costs £35.

Some of you might recall the vintage-style London maps by Herb Lester Associates we featured a short while back. Well, Herb Lester Associates are back to take us on another trip, this time back in time with the Wish You Were There map.
It's a map of central London boutiques, coffee bars, clubs and other diversions that were around between 1960 and 1966. There are 130 entries, each with a street address and description, ranging from the obvious names – The Flamingo, Marquee, Scene for example to lesser known places like Roger Roger, Wild West Won and Fireman Jack. All addresses have been checked using contemporary sources such as magazines, music papers, and Kellys directories. So if you want to know exactly where on Old Compton Street Sportique was, it's now as flipping out your map.
This map is bigger than previous maps at A2, so the price is a little more too. Saying that, you can pick this one up for just £4 including postage, which is a real bargain. Another image over the page.
