No longer do I have to be homesick for my beloved Chitown thanks to the fine folks over at Wurlington Brothers Press, who publish the Build Your Own Chicago series of scale model postcards. Each card can be cut and assembled into a miniature paper model of a prominent Chicago landmarks. Inspired by the “Micromodels” designed by Geoffrey Heighway in the 1950s, all the Wurliington Brothers Press postcards are designed and drawn by Matt Bergstrom. Pictured above is the Red Line and the El Tracks. Check out their awesome selection. They even offer some as freebie PDFs. If you’re of the NYC persuasion, they also have a Build Your Own New York selection.

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.
