Beirut Beiti (Beirut, my home), is a series of maps of Beirut. We've designed the map in five striking color schemes, with a newspaper-like background. Upon closer inspection, the background is comprised of subtle Arabic typography; the words "Beirut beiti" repeat over and over, a mantra that forms a pattern.
You can select up to 6 plots to highlight in custom cut gold foil, and have your own bespoke Beirut map. Your map is made to order by our team and printed in Beirut on high quality textured cotton paper.
Customise Your Map
- Pick your favorite color scheme
- Pick a custom title in Arabic or English. Leave this section empty if you want the title "بيروت بيتي".
- Tell us what spots say Beirut to you. Is it your parents' home? A favorite restaurant? A store you frequent often?
Pick up to 6 plots*, and we'll highlight them using custom cut gold foil which is then overlaid by hand. We want your plot locations to be as accurate as possible, so that our team can design a map you'll absolutely love. To share your plot locations with us:
- Create a map using Google My Maps to save your locations
- Add pins of up to 6 locations on the map
- Paste the map link in the space provided
- Use Google maps to find the coordinates of each location
- Share the coordinates in the space provided
If your locations are well known spots such as restaurants or cafes, simply write down the names.
*If you leave this section empty we'll assume that you don't want to highlight anything.
* Please make sure that your locations are within Beirut, Lebanon.
- You may chose the option to have your map a little more zoomed in. This option works well if your plots are close together or you want to focus on an area of Beirut. Our team will design the crop and zoom of your map to look great!
- We'll e-mail you with a print proof to make sure everything is just the way you want it before we print your map. Please allow up to 1 week for us to design and finalise your map before we email you.
- After you give us your thumbs up, we'll print and ship your map.
