Techniques of creation

Discover the techniques for creating and reproducing handmade and printed maps from the 16th to the 18th century. Discover the ink and watercolor techniques, how to engrave on wood or copper and print maps, the perspectives chosen by the artists and cartographers, and the symbols and illustrations used.

I share articles and books I have read here, as well as the experiments that I make, to reproduce these past centuries’ techniques.
