See St. Louis in a New Way

IMG_7908Saint Louis is a great place to be and a great place to explore. There are so many things that you can do that it may even be too much to take in all at once. There are also some great pictures of St. Louis that are floating about on the Internet but what if you had a different view. Let me introduce to you Modern Map Art.

Modern Map Art reached out to St. Louis Dad and wanted to send over a print of a map of St. Louis. If you mention St. Louis and art, I am interested in checking it out. I must say, these maps are amazing. They are very artistically detailed and have a few different styles available depending on the city. St. Louis for example has a two awesome black and white options, as well as a blue and yellow, and blue and red, which could represent the Blues and the Cardinals.

IMG_7935I asked if they could send over one of the black and white prints and I was very surprised that they sent over a full sized poster. There are options for smaller prints but having the options for full size posters is just as awesome. Once the poster arrived I carefully removed it from it’s shipping tube and noticed that the paper was of excellent quality. This poster was not like the posters your kids hang on their walls. This print is a lot heavier in material and demands to be framed. Printed on museum quality matte paper and using UltraChrome water based HDR ink-jet technology to print to the edges on every poster, brings a this beautiful print to life. It’s not necessary to frame if you really don’t want to, but I do, so I did.

I hung this amazing print in my home office and I am very happy with how it looks. It just looks incredible and brings a smile to my face seeing my home city in this artistic way. I highly recommend checking out the various St. Louis designs on Modern Map Art. If St. Louis isn’t your city, check out some of the other city map art options. There are a bunch and are all worth a click.

Modern Map Art provided St. Louis Dad with a complimentary print in exchange for an honest review. Check out Modern Map Art’s website for more amazing artistic prints of maps!

I can’t wait to show this off! Find out what it is on the blog Monday!
