Ephemera | Paris street map.

Do you think this is interesting? I do. This is a street map of Paris that I think was printed in the 1920s. The zigzag frame is so cool and, considering the booklet is almost 90 years old, I am surprised how current it looks. I think this would be classified as French Art Deco. When I saw it this morning on the table it reminded me a lot of the post that I did yesterday of Grady's illustrations - what do you think?

This piece comes from a selection of antique maps of Paris that I have collected over the last few years. I love it more for it's cover than for it's map!
