Difference between maps and pictures

The terms historical map and print are often used interchangeably. But there is indeed a difference. Whereas the historical map has as its sole function a map of the world, a country or a city, historical prints are images of a town or village view. Maps have a scientific, accurate character, while in a print the perspective was played with. A scene was depicted.

And that is what makes our prints from Leiden and prints from Amsterdam so special. Curious about our extensive collection? Take a look at our online catalog or come to our store in Amsterdam or Middelburg during opening hours.We wish you a warm welcome!
