About the author of the Adriatic sea map

Even though the Adriatic sea map is showing the region as of 10th century AD, it was actually created it in the 16th century.
Flemish cartograph Abraham Ortelius was the person behind the work. He drew inspiration from ancient Roman and some renaissance cartographers. Ortelius was a map engraver at the beginning, then became a businessman and crossed his paths with the famous Gerard Mercator. Mercator seemed to have a great influence on the Ortelius. As a result of that, Ortelius took a turn in his career and become a professional geographer.
The map was published around 1590 in Antwerp. Its title is "Pannoniae et Illyrici Veteris Tabula". In English, this translates to "Pannonia and Illyria old map".
It has a lot of inscriptions all in Latin. Here are some inscriptions you’ll find on the map:
Lower centre - “Cum Gratia et Privilegio decennali 1590.”, meaning “With grace, and a privilege for ten years, 1590”.
Lower left - "Loca incertae positionis”. In English, this translates to “Places with uncertain location”. It seems like there was a long list of places they knew about but did not know exactly where to put them on the map.

Frame made of an old boat from Adriatic sea

Originally, the Adriatic sea map was hand coloured and the replica that you can buy here gives this same handmade,  antique, and nautical feeling. The map is ready-made and is waiting to be sent out directly you to hang on your wall. The map itself is printed using modern technology. However, that is just the start. After printing, we add the final touches to the map. We fray the edges and attach the frame by hand. To add to the authenticity and old-world charm, the frame is made of an old boat that has been driving around the same area that the map is showing.
This is a unique and content-rich map that looks amazing. If you have any connection to the Adriatic area, you’ll love the map.

It can hang on your wall in a few days

The map is ready and we can send it to you straight away. It takes up to 6 business days for the map to arrive and to be ready to hang on the wall. Hit that add to cart button or send us an email if you have some questions. Don't forget, we can also customise the map for you so that it will fit your wall perfectly.

The item was done quicker than I expected, and was shipped quickly, and arrived even quicker. The quality of this map can not be understated. It's absolutely beautiful and I will definitely be purchasing from this seller again, as well as recommending them to everyone. They kept me informed every step of the way, and were extremely easy to deal with. If I could give this a ten out of ten instead of a five out of five I absolutely would. I can't rave enough about the product or the seller. Amazing.
