Art, Parchment Moon

I want your old National Geographic map inserts!

Hello good people of the Internet!

In basements across this great continent, there are thousands, nay…hundreds of thousands, of old National Geographic magazines. I’ve seen them. I wrangled oh so many of them when helping clean out my parents’ house. I have flipped fondly through them before finally bundling them into the recycling bin.

And now I…want them.

Or at least I want a part of them.

I want your Nat Geo maps!

I am looking for as many old National Geographic map inserts as I can get my hands on. I want to use them for art, and if I can get enough of them, I want them for an extensive continuing art project that could go on for years.

It doesn’t matter how old they are, what shape they’re in, or what the inserts are about. Migration patterns! History! Political maps! Farm land usage! Whatever!

Donate and get free art!

If you have some old maps that you would like to donate to my project, please email me at, or contact me on Twitter or Facebook.

I will pay shipping costs if they’re a problem, and everyone who donates will get free art!
