Is it art? A lesson in geography? A sense of belonging? A treasured memory, perhaps?
Enjoy the Wood’s city maps are all these things and much more, just as it is with our wooden world maps for art wall decoration. We often live our lives in the same place for years and even decades but never really understand where we are. These intricate aerial maps of cities around the world reveal every nook and cranny that often escapes the attention of long-time residents.
You do not even have to live in these places to display one of Enjoy the Wood’s minutely-detailed wooden maps in your home or office. Many people choose one because of a wonderful visit in the past, or because the city has an iconic world-famous character.
Whatever the reason that appeals to your soul the most, there is no denying that each curving street, each jagged shoreline, and every ramrod straight bridge is recreated with amazing accuracy here. You will spend hours admiring the fine craftsmanship that went into its creation and so will your guests. Buy one of them directly or take a look at the options for custom wooden maps to create your very own.
More than a Map
All our city maps are available exclusively as 3D wood maps. We create the 3-dimensional effect by using three layers of high quality fiberboard, one layer for each kind of physical feature. This gives the map the shadows that enhance its 3D visual appearance. We emphasize the different layers by giving each one a different color. This makes for 3 color tones in each map:
- Earthy brown for the land
- Lighter brown for built-up features such as roads and highways
- Blue for water features such as rivers and oceans
As you can see from the images of the wooden city maps, this combination of colors creates what looks like a work of art. Combined with the abstract lines representing road and highways - some straight and orderly, others curved and unrestrained – these wooden city maps will draw the eye and intrigue the mind for hours on end.
Unlike our world maps which consist of several pieces that need to be installed in alignment for an accurate end result, city maps consist of a single piece within its own ‘frame’. Your map is ready to be set up immediately when it is delivered. The entire process will take about 20 minutes or less.
