We are a family business specialising in publishing rare and historical maps, charts, plans, engravings and other interesting things c.1620 - 1900.


Hand-covering the slip cases and individually laying down the maps and engravings on cloth, gives them a very tactile feel.


Our stockist's range from small gift & home shops , to the V & A Museum, Liberty, Fortnum and Mason and the British Library.


In addition to our  own products, we also welcome bespoke work, for example the Rocque map of London 1740, we recently produced for Kew Gardens.


We always strive to the highest quality we can, our motto being ‘near enough is not good enough’

All our maps are made individually in our Buckinghamshire workshop. They are printed with pigment ink ,on to archival paper, laid on to cloth and, along with the slip cases, individually made by hand. They are light fast and fade resistant and the marble papers that we use are reproduced directly from original papers in our collection dating to as early as c.1700 from a book bound in Paris.
