HK-based Blank has launched its World Map canvas, allowing you to record all the places you’ve visited with 200 plotting pins. Measuring 140x85cm, World Map is available in colour, monochrome and vintage shades, with text that can be custom-made. Light and water-resistant ultrachrome pigment inks were used to print the canvases that were then hand-stretched on wooden frames.

“We had great fun reminiscing on past travels and pinning our own World Map,” says Blank founder Tinja Wright. “We assumed we were pretty well travelled, but it was shocking to see great swathes of the world that we’d not even touched. It’s inspired us to be more intrepid with our next trips and make sure the pins are more evenly distributed in future!”
