Famille Summerbelle: Screen Printed City Maps

I am such a big fan of Famille Summerbelle, especially of the hand screen-printed city maps. I love the way every tiny detail on the map is so well thought out and incorporated into the image. Julie, the designer, cuts out every little detail by hand with a scalpel. I cannot even imagine the kind of patience and concentration that would take!

We have the Paris Map and I am now thinking of adding the London Map to our collection. We travel to London so much, it is such a cute reminder of our travels. The maps have recently been revisited with new vibrant colours… how lovely is the London Bus Red of the image above? Also new at Famille Summerbelle are the laser-cut maps, which I think look so great too, they are kind of the grown up version of the screen printed maps!
