If you haven’t already heard of Etsy, this is about to be a very good day for you. Etsy is an online shopping platform and collective for small-scale craftspeople. It allows you to buy all kinds of handmade and vintage goodies from all over the world.
At the moment, we’re particularly into these great maps of Copenhagen. If you’re into antiques, graphic design or original handmade art, there’s something for you:
Handcut Paper Map of Copenhagen from Vellum and Trace
Handmade and shipping from Washington, United States, this gorgeous map is made from white vellum paper with a subtle grey underlay. The intricate, meticulous design and monochrome palate are the perfect mix of art and architecture.
Literal English Translation of Copenhagen S-Train Map from CPHTrain
This map is an old favorite of ours and it still makes us laugh. With great station names like “Pete’s Explosion Road” and “May Be Leafy,” the literal translations of the Copenhagen city train lines are great fun. The graphic for the map itself – mirroring the official one – is colorful and clean.

Giclée Copenhagen Map from Maps Maps Maps
This lovely map of Copenhagen is available in stark black-on-white glicée, a range of colors, or even in watercolor. Rather than focusing on streets, this is really about the shape of the land itself and therefore has a more abstract look.
Print of Copenhagen Antique Map (1853) from Victorian Wall Decor
This beautiful vintage map depicts Copenhagen in 1853. The subtle colors, grid and old-fashioned lettering are all delightful without being twee – it will look really elegant mounted and framed.. There’s only one copy so jump to it!
