Petaluma, CA, August 12, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Need an accent that speaks artfully across the ages? StockMapAgency.com, already a successful purveyor of modern maps, now offers Old-World vintage maps as museum quality fine art prints. These 15th- to 19th-century map reproductions appeal to the romance and nostalgia of days gone by.
“These map prints offer a wide appeal,” says Ed Hinkelman, publisher and CEO. “Vintage maps offer an affordable way to add a timeless sensibility and historical perspective to any décor.” He said.
With StockMapAgency.com offering over 2200 vintage maps, the choices of décor pieces are many. A city map of medieval Naples, a mid 19th century panoramic map of Washington, D.C., or a 16th-century map of the New World are as much conversation starters as they are visual accents.
“Vintage maps provide a window into the past, representing the dreams, ambitions and optimism of the times.” said Hinkelman. “When you look at these maps, you see the ambition of the 16th & 17th century monarchs in their world maps, the battle strategy of Civil War generals in the 1850s era maps of the US south, and the unbridled optimism and self promotion in the panoramic maps of the cities and towns across the US in the late 19th century.” Hinkelman added.
An artful map presentation can be used in any room, with any design scheme, within any decorating budget. These high-resolution giclee prints are available in any suitable size and serve as an affordable means of acquiring one of these historical maps without the expense of purchasing the original.
