Anyone flying into Seattle might think Metsker looks familiar; it's one of the local shops with an outpost in the Seattle-Tacoma airport. At the main branch, visitors embrace the near-dead art of map-making while they still can: There are shelves of travel books, both local and worldwide, and paper maps for hiking the Northwest wilderness or driving downtown Seattle. The beautiful woodcut maps in the window are for sale, as are passes and permits for local parks and public lands should you want to put your new wares into use.
