Antica - reproductions of old mapsAround 1540, Emperor Karl V. put in charge the cartographer Gerhard Mercator to create a drawing of a new map collection. Karl V. wanted to have the Holy German Empire as well as the world, shown as it was known in this time.
Antica released those old maps as maps of the XVII - XVIII. century, printed on artificially aged parchment paper. The collection contains the oldest maps of different regions. A decorative gift for any occasion.
After eight weeks and after many successive special baths and dryings, the parchment paper gets its yellow and old fashioned look.
ANTICA maps are available rolled in elegant, high-quality antique tubes.
NEW!!! Maps of States and Regions
The ANTICA collection was completed by 16 new titles, some federal states of Germany and some interesting regions.
