Citiscape Acrlic Coasters

My daughter is a tireless traveller and set herself a goal to travel to at least as many countries as her age. She is turning 32 next week and currently is well within her goal despite the pandemic putting a damper on her travel plans for 2020.

As a consolation prize I decided to make for her a set of 8 coasters with the skyline of some of the cities and counties she already has visited, with a promise to add more as space in her small bar allows.

They are 1/8 acrylic scored on the back so the top surface is smooth.
Also made a holder with a world map, compass rose an the definition of:

Wanderlust: (n) a strong desire to wander or travel and explore the world.

Those are really cool!
But looking I cannot find the cities of Argentina, or Brazil on the maps.

One way to improve would be added little silicone circles on the corners so that the acrylic doesn’t slide. Also adds a bit of depth when they are stacked. Looks fab!

You are right, @rbtdanforth, y should have said cities and countries.
The original plan was for cities, but Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires did not quite fit in the space with the chosen font style, so I improvised.

Great Idea, however the holder depth does not account for the added height.
Maybe for next iteration of cities and countries.
