The Blaue family ran one of the most renowed Dutsch publishing house during the seventeenth century, specialised in the printing of geographical books, nautical maps and atlases.The Blaeu printing works are especially known for the publication in 1669 of four large mural maps representing Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa.
This artistic reproduction of a vintage map was made using modern graphic procedures, but obtaining the results found in the antique copperplate engraving technique, as one can easily find out by lightly rubbing his/her finger on the map. This map, which is an exact reproduction of the original antique, is printed on cotton paper panels which are glued and mounted on a cotton cloth background "a stacchi" (slightly separated from each other), in order to allow for folding and easier transport. Finally, map is water-colored by hand making it a truly unique piece, worthy of the original old print.
