The Beauty of Antique Maps

There is something truly fascinating about antique maps. It’s a way of looking at the world the way people did centuries ago. Long before the time of airplanes and satellites, the world was explored and charted by hundreds of different people. Creating a map that pulled all of those documents together into something that resembled the world as it was is truly a phenomenal feat.

That’s one of the reasons these world map tapestries are so wonderfully unique, and make for such an amazing focal point in the home.

Maps have a way of speaking to people very straightforward. You don’t have to have a lot of knowledge of map history or history in general. To me, they’re perfect tools for teaching history to the public.
