5 out of 5 stars

Announcement   Each print has been individually handmade by me in Melbourne, Australia. There is no other print the same anywhere in the world – each one is completely unique.

A little bit about the production process:
// each map or atlas is rescued from a garage sale, op shop or grandpa’s shed, but only if its at least 20 years old
// the map is then guillotined by hand, the vintage image carefully selected, and then digitally printed directly on the map
// the print is mounted with a cardboard mat and foam backing (all made in Melbourne as well), so all that is left for you to do is pop it in a frame!

About

rescuing vintage maps from obscurity

Each print has been individually handmade by me in Melbourne, Australia. There is no other print the same anywhere in the world – each one is completely unique.

A little bit about the production process:
- each map or atlas is rescued from a garage sale, op shop or grandpa’s shed, but only if its at least 20 years old
- the map is then guillotined by hand, the vintage image carefully selected, and then digitally printed directly on the map
- the print is mounted with a cardboard mat and foam backing (all made in Melbourne as well), so all that is left for you to do is pop it in a frame!

If you're hunting for a present for someone that is super hard to buy for, I can make you a custom print - just choose an image (or if you can't see the one you want, just ask - I have hundreds more in stock) and an area of the world that your gift recipient has a particular affinity with.

Convo me with your request for any particular map or image combination – if I have the map and image in stock, I can help you!

Happy browsing!
