Welcome to the daily series, In Search Of, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today we’re looking at maps in all forms.

Is it too much to ask for a map to a map? We don’t think so. We’ve cut out the hassle of asking for directions and rounded up the best looking maps on Krrb.

Limited edition sunglasses. They have the subway map printed on them, so if you get lost, you can just refer to your eyewear. From Beatface‘s Krrb corner. $194.

Vintage Globe
