Even if you've never used a real map in your life (we're looking at you, milenials) it's hard to argue with the beauty of these sea charts from Below the Boat.
Each one features a famous American coastal area or body of water, including Lake Michigan, the Florida Keys, and the San Juan Islands. All the maps are cut in Asia,* but hand-colored and glued using multiple layers of laser-cut Baltic birch. Each comes with its own custom wooden frame.
The price of all this beauty? Usually no more than $150.
Starting from $138, belowtheboat.com
