This Week’s Free Map: Stephen King’s Derry (A.K.A. Bangor, Maine)

This week’s free map! It is of lovely Bangor, Maine — known as the inspiration of Stephen King’s Derry, the setting of many of his most popular books, including It. I don’t know about you, but I watched the entirety of that movie from behind my hands, because I actually thought it was super scary. Maybe you’re thinking: Wait. That’s not the scariest town in America. I was going to do Salem, Massachusetts. Witches! Very seasonally appropriate! But — TBH — I know it was like 400 years ago but I just couldn’t get into the idea that women getting hanged was suitable fodder for a Halloween marketing promotion. You know? We should, or I should, not make light of such injustices, even those that are a long time ago, now. I swear to goodness that this map looks terrific if you print it out. I did that, above, on my little Pixma, and it came out great. Download it here!

This Week’s Free Map: Montmartre

This week’s free map is Montmartre! The most romantic neighborhood in Paris, especially if your romance is with hills. To download the map, shown below, just click here. Save it, print it out and frame it — it’s distressingly indistinguishable from a screenprint. The better quality the printer, the better quality the print, though even a super-cheap printer (like mine) will do a half-decent job. Each map is only available for free for a week, so download away.

This Week’s Free Map: London

This week’s map is London! London’s the greatest, and it is also the city that greeted Major Charity Adams (later lieutenant colonel, just FTR) with a Buzz Bomb. To learn more about Charity Adams, I strongly recommend her autobiography, One Woman’s Army: A Black Officer Remembers the WAC or Double Victory: How African American Women Broke Race and Gender Barriers to Help Win World War II.

This Week’s Free Map: Paris

This week’s free map is of Paris, City of Light, Love, and Louboutins. I sacrificed a lot to make that alliteration work, including five minutes going through pastries that begin with an L.  To download the map, shown below, just click here.
