2020 Antique Maps Calendar
During the golden age of mapmaking, in the first centuries after the invention of the printing press, ambitious printers issued magnificent maps and atlases that documented European explorers’ first encounters with continents previously unknown to them. Each map is a rich cultural artifact, decorated with fanciful type, extravagant borders, and elaborate dedications.
The twelve maps in this calendar were selected from the collections of the Library of Congress, which holds the largest cartographic collection in the world, numbering more than five million maps as well as thousands of atlases, globes, and other cartographical treasures.
All of Pomegranate’s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® and manufactured by an FSC certified printer. FSC certification promotes responsible forest management by ensuring that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable.
