|Reproduction of vintage Paris city guide, circa 1921, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
A few days ago, I was walking by the window display at my local Paper Source, when a vintage map of Paris caught my eye (If you know me or have been reading this blog, you know I heart many, many things French, especially Paris!). Closer inspection and a quick chat with the salesgirl revealed a happy surprise - the map was actually a single sheet of wrapping paper, and was only $3.95! (Urban Outfitters has the exact same print for $24.95.) I'm not sure how long they've had them, but Paper Source currently has a treasure trove of Cavallini & Co. prints - reproductions of everything from 18th century engravings to prints found in vintage French encyclopedias. Measuring 20 x 28, they are the perfect size to double as wall art. Here are a few of my favorites:
|Cavallini World Map 4 Wrapping Paper, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
|Cavallini Animals Wrapping Paper, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
I picked up this animal print for my daughter's playroom - colorful, whimsical, but still sophisticated. Child-like, without being childish.
|Cavallini Butterflies Wrapping Paper, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
|Cavallini ABC Wrapping Paper, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
|Cavallini Plumes Wrapping Paper, $3.95, paper-source.com.|
A few minutes on Google and I found this sweet little office with the Cavallini Paris Map. It definitely cleans up nicely, don't you think?
Hope you are all having a great week!
