Awesome Maps is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign created by Simon Schuetz from Germany, a travel lover (of course he is). Schuetz managed to raised more than USD $56,000 with 1,163 backers. Even though the Kickstarter campaign has ended, these maps are now made available for sale to the general public.
Awesome Maps shows the world’s most unmissable locations in a beautiful way: from classics to genuine insider tips, you simply have to see.
Most of the maps are created in two styles:
– Scratch edition, is covered with a silver foil, similar to a lottery scratch card. Whether you want to discover country by country, make an itinerary or scratch open the whole map at once: at the end, you’ll have a detailed illustrated map with the most beautiful places in the world.
– Rewritable map, where you can mark out with a whiteboard marker your personal favourite places or check off where you’ve already been
That’s why the Awesome Maps products are creative posters for travellers and a very special gift idea for anyone who has the travel bug.
