Zoomable Maps

London-based designer Anne Stauche has created the brilliant map²—a series of paper maps inspired by the zoomable feature of digital maps. The cleverly designed versions of map² are pocket-sized paper maps that utilize a unique folding process to allow users to zoom-in on enlarged area views.

The map² is currently available for London and Berlin, but Stauche has launched a Kickstarter project to fund a New York City version.

These days I never hit the road without downloaded off-line digital maps and my trusty map apps, but I still bring tried and true paper maps just in case. I’ll definitely be a steady customer for the map².
