Dig This Vintage German Map of the Iberian Peninsula at The Found & The Freed

I had Spain on the brain after reading Shaun Layton’s Friday story on the art of the Gin & Tonic and its renaissance in Barcelona; good timing to see this large vintage map of Spain and Portugal at The Found & The Freed. It’s pretty striking in its brightly coloured relief, and it doesn’t bother me a bit that it’s in German.

Note: if Blighty is more your thing, they also have an equally huge map of the British Isles for sale.
