Palomar City Maps

By Conde Nast Traveler Wednesday, February 02 02:42 PM

Already wasted too much of your life trying to refold paper maps and too much of your money on charges from checking maps on your cell overseas? Italian company Palomar feels your pain and has found a solution to one of life's little annoyances with its Crumpled City series. Printed on durable, waterproof fabric, these maps offer a new way of seeing the world. Or at least six cities: New York, London, Rome, Paris, Berlin, and Hamburg.

The slick look, courtesy of designer Emanuele Pizzolorusso, makes the maps as easy to read as they are to stuff in your pocket. In addition to pointing out your standard Eiffel Towers and Louvres, each map directs you to "SoulSights"unexpected spots that evoke the unique character of a destination. But we're just happy to bid farewell to those soulless hours of origami-ing paper guides into submission.
