It's definitely safe to say that Karen M. O'Leary takes "cutting inside the lines" to a whole new level. To create these wonderful pieces, the artist prints out city maps and meticulously cuts out all of the excess paper in-between.

That may sound easy until you look at just how big these maps are. Major cities from all over the world like Sydney, NYC and Rome have all been given the Karen M. O'Leary treatment. All of these maps are of incredible quality, with no edges or accidental cut marks anywhere. Check them out in the featured gallery and try to wrap your head around which city is which.
