World map

A classical map of the modern world

Buy the map

Maps have fascinated me my whole life. I take great pleasure in browsing through the cartographic work of the old masters such as Abraham Ortelius or Joan Blaeu. Their work has inspired me to produce my own world map. The result is a map containing all the current countries of the world, styled towards 16th/17th century cartography with classical colouring and cartographical elements on a Mercator projection.

In addition, the map features seven of the most influential exploration voyages made by the likes of Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and Abel Tasman.
