Artist Karen M. O’Leary creates detailed maps of famous cities by carving them on a single sheet of paper. She first prints the map on heavy-weight paper then painstakingly cuts out the unwanted regions to leave a tangled and delicate web of paper streets. Her paper cut-out maps sells at Etsy at an astounding $1000+ a piece.
