City in a jar is a project by Adam Brackney from Minneapolis, USA. The idea is to take popular places, turn them into simple little icons, which are placed onto pin-back buttons. It’s a great way to represent your city or a part of it, which you are proud of. Currently there are only two cities in the jar Minneapolis and New York. San Francisco is in the making and hopefully other places outside the US too. If you love this project you should head over to kickstarter and support Adam.

Finished here? Then have a look at these.

WOW! Thanks so much for the AWSM post about our Kickstarter project! Cities outside of the US are definitely in the works. Thanks again!
