The Ultimate Song Map

Think you’re the ultimate music lover or know someone that is? If so, you’ll want to check out this new print by Dorothy, which cleverly turns song titles into real roads, parks and even houses and hotels. Dorothy is that creative house who came up with those awesome artworks made of logos stripped of their names.

“The street map is, as its name suggests, made up entirely from song titles: from Highway to Hell to Penny Lane, Itchycoo Park to Heartbreak Hotel,” they say. “And just like places in our own neighbourhood, some are really good and some are best avoided – remember Love House by Sam Fox? Probably best forgotten.

If you’re dying to figure out who sang what, there’s an A-Z key of all the songs featured at the bottom of the map along with the artists and bands that sang them.”

They’re selling 100 signed and stamped 1st edition prints at 100 each (or $155) and open edition prints at 20 (or $31) each.

Both editions are available for international delivery here.
