Romani Imperii Imago - a 16th century map of the Roman Empire focused on the Mediterranean, while also showing most of Europe, Northern Africa, and the Near and Middle East. The medallion portraits in upper corners portray Romulus and Remus, the 'genealogical tree' describes the lineage of the Roman emperors, and the strapped cartouches explain the history of the Empire.
All of our reproductions are done on hand-processed paper, illuminated with gold paint and finished with beeswax, giving them a real parchment-like look. Actual colors may vary a bit due to different monitors displaying colors differently.
Map of the Roman Empire, Abraham Ortelius, 1584
In case your print creases during the travel, as it usually does travel for some time, you can safely warm it up with a hair-dryer, and the wax will melt back right into it. You can also use a lighter, which is a much faster method, but be careful to keep the flame either above the paper or parallel to it (which means holding the paper vertically) so it doesn't smudge or even catch fire. The chance of the print actually creasing is very small, as they are rolled in bubble-wrap and shipped in a cardboard box. Also, be sure to keep the print out of the direct sunlight, as it can melt or fade.
