Mappa Mundi Cartography
specializes in cartographic design. I create customized maps & illustrations for a great variety of publications, at an affordable rate.
“To put a city in a book, to put the world on one sheet of paper - maps are the most condensed humanized spaces of all...They make the landscape fit indoors, make us masters of sights we can't see and spaces we can't cover.”
― Robert Harbison, Eccentric Spaces
Whether you are working on a book, a thesis, or an article, there is a tremendous amount of effort that goes into publishing one's work. A good map can be crucial to explain a narrative's geographical framework. But when it comes to publishing, a print screen from an online mapping website won't cut it.
Don't worry, this is where Mappa Mundi c omes in!

What counts is that your project ends up with a map we are both pleased with!
Formally founded in 2017, Mappa Mundi was the accidental by-product of my
own need for a map to accompany my PhD-research into early medieval history.
I wanted a map illustration that was both relevant and beautiful. The outcome attracted attention, eventually resulting in a small illustration company.
Since then, Mappa Mundi has created maps for academic and non-academic publishing houses world-wide, as well as exhhibitions, board games and even camp sites!
Feel free to contact me if you desire a map illustration for your project. I'll be happy to discuss the possibilities and provide you with a fair cost estimate for your tailored illustrations.
