Henricus Hondius' World Map gallery-wrapped canvas is a high-quality set elevating cartography to art.
An example of Dutch cartography's Golden Age, this map not only renders a three-dimensional world on a two-dimensional surface but contains magnificent images of Julius Caesar, Claudius Ptolemy, Joducus Hondius, Gerard Mercator, the four elements and the goddess Europa. Cartography (from Greek, khartes = papyrus (paper) and graphein = to write) is the study and practice of making maps.
Combining science, aesthetics, and technique, cartography builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information effectively.
