There are many creative crafters, designers, and artists out there and when their inspiration comes from the city we love, the work they produce becomes that much more special. Vancouver is Awesome recently featured a minimalist map by Archie Archambault of Portland so I thought I would look up a few more unique maps that any Vancouverite would be proud to display in their home or office.
