Oliver Jeffers maps Places on Earth

I have always loved maps. Perhaps it’s because I have fond memories of attending my dad’s geography lectures when I was four, where students would slip me Kool Mints while my dad was lecturing. Or maybe it’s because maps can be both practical and pretty at the same time.

Here’s a rare chance to own a map that I consider artwork. The Places on Earth print was created exclusively for You and Me, the Royal We by the extremely talented Oliver Jeffers.

Even in a ‘simple’ world map, Jeffers manages to inject his sense of humour. Each signed print comes with more than two hundred pins in a tin so that you can “Chart your path to total global domination. 200 of the pins are black, one of them is red and one of them is blue. Red is for headquarters, blue is for next target.”

Places on Earth prints are US$180 each. You and Me, the Royal We ships internationally.
