FAQ Questions on Antique Historical Maps

Antique/Historical Collection

Our unique collection of over 125 Antique and Historical maps is perfect for your graphic design, illustration, web site or education projects where any antique/historical map is required. Whether for print or web, we have pulled together the best of the US Library of Congress Geography and Map Division’s historical maps. With maps ranging from Europe, Asia, Africa the Americas, World, States and Cities, from 1500s to the 1900s all in one collection.

Map Conditions

Our maps come from the US Library of Congress Geography and Map Division’s historical maps. And with them come all the bumps and lumps of time. We have done minimal editing to these files. Preferring to keep them as real as possible. The main cleaning up is removing the date stamps and other markings that have been put on over time. We have kept the wonderful look and feel of an antique map. So some have stains and mold markings, tears and rips. They aren’t perfect, that is why we love em.

File Format

Our digital images come in RGB JPG formats in two resolutions, 300 dpi and 72 dpi. The high res images range in size from 10” to 18” wide, an average around 40mb, the 72 dpi images are 10” wide and average around 1.3mb. JPG maps can be edited and customized in pretty much any bitmap photo drawing program such as Adobe Photoshop, and Paint Brush. JPG maps also work well with graphic and presentation programs like Adobe In-Design, Quark, Adobe Illustrator, FinalCut, Apple Keynote, Microsoft PowerPoint and Word.

Where Can I Purchase the Collection

Our map collection ships on a 3 CD set. We sell our maps on two sites, Amazon.com and on one of our editable clip art World of Maps sites, www.MapsforDesign.com.
