One can always decorate with maps. Antique maps have a depth of interest and beauty of texture that isn't found in anything else. We were reminded how much we love maps by Swiss Miss' recent Strange Maps post.

And what better place to discover wonderful old maps in NYC than Argosy Book Store? They're said to have one of the greatest collections of antique maps in the world.

A quick perusal online found this wonderful 1864 New York City map (up top) alongside a State of Kansas map (that's where we're from).

Take a look for yourself, or better yet, visit their gallery in person.
