The Beauty of Old Maps

I am in love with maps!

It has the magic to bring back the most fond memories. We can revisit places that we love, bringing back the smells, sounds and tastes we experienced. It brings families together, the centre point of a home, where we reminisce and remember happy memories, thinking back to stories from the past.

As human beings, we all have our own values, beliefs and attitudes that we have developed throughout the course of our lives.

Our ancestors, family, friends, community and the experiences we have had all contribute to our sense of who we are and how we view the world.

Ancient maps take us through a journey back in time and remind us of our knowledge and our perception of the world.

The history illustrated in maps are not merely geographical, but also a perceptual history of how we see the world, each other, and, ultimately, ourselves.

Anyone else loves old maps?
