Palomar & Emanuele Pizzolorusso's
Crumpled Sky Map: Night Sky Glow In the Dark
Twinkle, twinkle little star...get lost in space with these starry sky maps by Palomar, a boutique design firm based in Italy dedicated to clever map making for the modern traveler. Designers Emanuele Pizzolorusso and Alessandro Maffioletti sought to convey the eternal fascination and beauty of looking to the sparkling night sky with these durable maps printed on an extra-light, 100 percent water-resistant material that is resistant to wear and tear and can be crumpled and flattened endlessly. They also glow in the dark thanks to special luminescent inks that allow for refined graphic rendering. Emanuele and Alessandro say, "The global aim of the project is to offer all potential dreamers here on earth the possibility of reading the map of 'their' sky." Maps can be folded or crumpled and stuffed into an accompanying pouch.
