truthofmasks asked: This is a gift idea, which you might want to incorporate on this site in some way. A lot of times, thrift stores and stationery stores - especially those closing down - will have topographical maps from the U.S. Geological Survey for a really low price. They're great to use as wrapping paper, cut up and make envelopes out of, frame, use to bind booklets, or as backing for pictures. I used some as backing for coin and stamp collections, for example, and have tons left over.

Thanks for the tip! Will see about including this under resources, meanwhile, publishing this for readers’ awareness.
