I came across Crumpled City maps at the Bordeaux Tourist Office recently. What a novel idea to bring to an end that obligatory folding battle with the maps of old! Read it and roll up into a ball when done; ram it into your bag or pocket; rain or shine, these maps are resilient, rip-free and reusable time and again.
There are over 50 cities currently available covering destinations across the globe. An award-winning Italian innovation, the Palomar company which produces the maps has a range of other similarly imaginative products, including wall map diaries, personal globes and crumpled maps for kids.
