The streets, parks, and landmarks of your city make a fun and festive decoration for parties or everyday.

I made this double-sided garland with pieces punched from an out-of-date metro atlas. Check the options for a long list of currently available cities.

* 10 feet decorated length
* Each scallop measures 1.5" across
* Strung on red and white cotton baker's twine
* Extra string on each end for hanging

This garland should be displayed inside or outdoors on a dry day. Paper and water don't get along. Also, though this garland makes great nursery decor, please display it out of reach of small children.

I package my garland in a clear plastic sleeve, with a Palimpsestic label. All garlands are shipped via USPS within 3-5 days.

If you need a particular length, different string color options, or more strands than I have listed, let me know. There's a lot I can do to make this decoration just right for you, so please don't hesitate to convo me using the "Contact" link on the right. If your city isn't listed, use the "Request a Custom Order" link to ask about it. I can often add it for a small upcharge and some additional processing time.

I rely on the serendipity of thrift stores and garage sales for most of my maps. When I'm looking for a specific map, I purchase the lowest condition copy available from a dealer. I never use new or collectible-quality materials in my map banners or garland.
