The Toronto skyline makes for one stylish ruler

I've posted about a lot of quirky Toronto paraphernalia over the years, be it maps, coasters, baseball bats, or screen prints, but this skyline ruler might take the cake for its odd charm. Part of a series that also includes cities like Paris, New York, Amersterdam, and Berlin, it's a cheap little souvenir ($9 US) that's sure to appeal to urban nerds and those who like the idea of being able to trace an outline of Toronto in less than three seconds.

Comparing the various cities on offer, it's nice to note that when paired down to its most iconic elements, our skyline might just be the nicest of the bunch -- or, at a minimum, holds its own against some of the other celebrated cities of the world. Here's a question for the Torontophiles out there: from what perspective do you think the skyline is presented here? Snake Island? Ward's? The Ferry? Weigh in with your suggestions below.

The Skyline Ruler is available online from Monkey Business.
