Painstaking times and plenty of papercuts

Artist Karen O'Leary has come up with these beautiful hand-cut paper maps of various big cities. Those not on a grid system, like London, appear really haphazard and messy but they're all pretty cool. Not so handy for a tourist to unfold on a windy day, better up on your wall.

London

Manhattan

NYC


 San Fran

 Singapore - I think this one's my favourite

 Sydney

 Vancouver

By Karen O'Leary - available to buy on Etsy too.

UPDATE - Metropolitan Cityscapes have gone one step further with the Urban Topography Collection - maps etched precisely into stainless steel.
