About MapMyWall

March 5th 2012 marked the 500th anniversary of the birth of the world's most famous cartographer. Gerardus Mercator made dozens of spectacular, very detailed and highly decorative maps. These valable maps (as well as those made by some of his successors) were published and bound by Judocus Hondius in 1607. This standard work was the first one to be called Atlas and consisted of accurate, manually coloured copper engravings. All continents and countries were mapped out.

You can now order high-quality reproductions of these wonderful 16th and 17th century maps, separately and in various sizes. These digital Giclee prints don't fade in the course of time and are ultraviolet resistant. 

Printed on a velvet soft, 310g strong paper that closely approximates the original, they make every interior attractive.

Besides the undeniable historical importance, these maps are extremely decorative and give an added value to all possible living or working spaces, studies, conference rooms, hotels rooms, etc.

www.MapMyWall.com offers marvellous, digitally printed reproductions of this unique work and keeps on looking for maps from the same period as to continually extend the collection. According to the latest research, this printing process secures unchanging colous for at least a 100 years (in contrast to traditional offset printing processes).

The original atlas can be seen at the Mercator museum in the town of Sint-Niklaas, Belgium.
