It’s National Map Reading Week

We’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love an old map, so to celebrate National Map Reading Week, we want to tell you about how we bring old maps to life. 

Maps are an integral part of any trip or adventure and hold memories that are often forgotten or kept deep within our smart phones. Through the rise of technology, the art of the printed map and how to appreciate it is being forgotten.

At Atlas & I, our aim is to give old maps new life by printing them onto everyday products you can use in your home. Their unique charm and history are part of who we are & is the foundation of our brand.


 1 – How we source the maps

Our maps come from a variety of sources. We scour antique map fairs and book shops to find original antique maps and atlases that are out of copyright. We also license maps through national libraries and institutions.  

 

2 – Making them digital

We carefully remove any bindings to ensure the map sheet is flat. Then the sheets are scanned at high resolution.  

 

3 – Creating your product

Once the maps have been scanned they are stored on our computers and can be re-printed onto any of our products. 

 

4 – Old maps given new life

Here are just some of the products that bring old maps to life in your home.
