Cheap Art: Paris Maps

(Paris at night from space, via

I don't know about any of you other travelers out there, but I absolutely adore maps. Putting aside the fact that I'm terrible at reading them, something about seeing a city laid out in a logical, vibrant way really appeals to my aesthetic. I like to collect maps and paper my walls with them, putting a pin in each place I've been. That's why for this Paris art roundup I've found a bunch of artistically interpreted Paris maps for you to buy for cheap, hang on your wall and get your wanderlust going.

Personally, I'd download the full-sized version of the above photo of Paris from space, frame it and hang it on my wall.

I'm mad for this colorful, blocky, mod rendering of Paris for just $30 by JazzberryBlue.

This arrondissement-ized map via Ork Posters, just $22, also comes in three other color combos and the higher-quality screen prints are only a few bucks more at $27.

The Paris Print Shop, for whom I've professed my adoration before, sells not only illustrations but photography as well, as displayed in this stunning color-by-arrondissement Paris map for $28.

This typography map of Paris is just gorgeous and just $10.95, but it's not geographically accurate (locations are repeated and placed willy-nilly).

For you crafty types out there, you can make your own embroidered Paris Métro map like the lovely one below for just the cost of supplies. DIY instructions here.

Or you can have this beautiful vintage Paris map from 1924, just $16, nicely framed.


  1. I really love the JazzberryBlue one. Thanks for sharing these!

  2. Paris at Night from Space. Sublime. Just came back from spending a week in that magnificent city.
