About Antique Style Maps

 

Maps

 
           
   

These antique style maps are not historically accurate to any particular period. They illustrate elements that are found in a variety of different antique maps or they simply have the look that one might expect to see in a hand drawn map.

Strip maps were usually used as road maps for travelers. Here, I've used one for a river instead of a road but the use as a traveler's aid is the same.

The River Gwenfrew

600x700

1200x1400

 

 
                 
           

Here is a strip map in the more traditional style.

The Road from Sudbury to Santepa

600x800

1500x2000

 

 
                 
           

Dragon's Head Peninsula

600x500

1000x800

 

 

 
                 
           

Hand drawn doesn't have to be just for overland maps. Here I've done a floorplan for a unique tavern.

The Drunk Duck

Buzzard's Cove

700x500

 

 
                 
           

I consider this look to be simply a general, hand drawn style of map.

Arundell

800x600

1800x1500

 

 

 
                 
           

This is that general, hand drawn style of map in a gently color washed version.

A calligraphy coastline and plain, scratch-sketched symbols give this map a distinctive look.

B&W-1000x800

B&W-1500x1200

 
                 
           

This is a nice, clean, B&W illustration style map

The Northland

1000x800

 
                 
           

And of course, we have to have something historically accurate.

Boston 1842

500X600

1300X1600

 
                 
           

A bit of post work gives this map that old, faded and folded look.
