I’m not sure why it took me so long to discover Herb Lester’s maps, but I’m certainly glad I did. You can pick up maps for several cities in their shop, including my personal favorite, Where The Sidewalk Ends: How to find old New York, this one for illustrated by Jim Datz.

    This is just too cute. I love maps, and I love the front cover! Makes me stoked for NYC in 4 days. A summer full of adventures. I adore the sketches on this. Bravo!
