Since we were established in 2002 from a genuine love for historical and old maps we have become bigger, wiser and remained just as committed to bringing you the most beautiful old map recreations.

No one knows exactly when the very first old map was constructed; there are many different theories on this subject, we do know that old maps were etched using a stick on sand canvas. By 2300BC Babylonians had progressed to using clay tablets to record map like images. By 1187 the magnetic compass revolutionized navigation and so along came sea charts, and then as travel developed with revolutionaries such as Marco Polo so did the maps. At Old maps we are especially enamored by Britain’s most famous map maker Mr. John Speed. He was the author of the most important and prestigious atlas of his day, namely the Theatre of the Empire, this historical map was first published in 1612, and also the Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World in 1627. These are a few of our most popular items, these and many more historical maps will be beautifully recreated for you and coloured by hand.

At Old Maps we love what we do and are determined to bring you the most beautiful recreations of old maps, whether it is for your own collection or to help with a history lesson for school purposes We have built up a great reputation over the years; this is largely due to our excellent customer service.
