Here at Newspaper Club, a world leader in the uploading and ordering of PDFs for newspaper printing, we have always been big fans Stamen’s work.
You can imagine our excitement when the order came in for a paper full of their new watercolour maps! Stamen have recently released three different map visual styles for use with OpenStreetMap under a Creative Commons licence*.
They wanted to make a paper for the recent Where 2.0 conference in San Francisco. The paper features pull out posters of different cities using the gorgeous watercolour map. The watercolour treatment seems to really suit the texture of newsprint.
Holy smoke, that finished paper is a beautiful thing. I think I might get my copy framed.
