I picked up these gorgeous vintage atlas pages from Spitalfields antiques market this morning. Each page has a map on the front and information about the country on the back. I think they will look great framed up in my new house. I will probably display the actual map sides, but the backs are just as lovely; check out the infographic goodness..

Spitalfields antiques day is Thursday and the stall I picked these up from is at the back near the Lux restaurant.

    These are great! Where exactly did you get them from? Was it a stall or one of the shops? I go often to Spitalfields and have never seen these!

    Hi Michelle – they were from a stall (at the back, near the Lux restaurant) – make sure you go on antiques day, Thursday!

    gorgeous!! love the flow lines in the faces map. could help me explain to (too) many people why people in my (chilean) family can celebrate st. patrick's day too!
    was just looking at a map to buy on eBay …
    oh to be able to frame for less $ than the proverbial arm and leg!

    Hannah.. it's open til 4. There are some stalls there on Sunday but it's mostly clothing rather than antiques so i don't know if that specific stall would be there. Have you been to Stanfords in Covent Garden – they sell loads of maps, too http://www.stanfords.co.uk
