World planisphere, by Urbano Monte - 1587

This world map by Urbano Monte is the largest known early planisphere of the world. It was hand drawn by Monte in Milan, Italy in 1587. The north polar azimuthal projection of Monte's planisphere demonstrates the advanced scientific knowledge of the time. The artistry is of the highest level and gives us, through precise imagery, many historical resource, listing places, shape of spaces and commentary on science, art, and history. The degree of detail and decoration is stunning and unique in the history of cartography. The map was originally created to serve as a geographical tool but also informs on climate, customs, length of day and distances within regions.

Our Map Reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio using heavyweight 23 mil Epson Exhibition Satin Canvas. This elegantly textured canvas features a semi-gloss satin surface that is enhanced with protective elastic polymers. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope twine that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to complete the vintage feel of a roll down canvas scroll.
