Libraries and schools are good places to find old maps, but you have to be at the right place at the right time. When libraries and schools restock their books and other items they often have sales, and you can get maps and books at really good prices. You just have to find out when the sales are going to take place.

@Sporkasia - The answer is flea markets. You can find old maps at flea markets and the dealers are practically giving them away in some cases. I have met several vendors who sell old books, and they usually have several atlases in their collections. I don't know whether the age of the maps makes a difference to you for what you are planning, but you can usually find some really old ones. These are more expensive than the newer ones because they are harder to find.

I have a friend who moved into a different house and decided she wanted to redo the dining room. This seemed strange to me since there was so much to do in the house and the dining room was the one room that had recently been painted. The paint job was very good and the color the previous owners chose was neutral, definitely something you could live with for a while.

After she had been in the house for a few weeks, my friend invited me over. The first thing she wanted to show me was the dining room. She had repainted the room and then used ocean maps to cover the lower part of the walls. It looked great. The wall was painted a greenish blue and this matched the color used to represent the water on the maps.

This was the first time I had seen a room done in this way. I don't want to be a copy cat, but I if I could find enough old maps then I think I would try using them as wallpaper in a room to see how it looked.
