At historic Maps of New England we believe that the inherent details of ward maps that makes them so interesting can be graphically enahnced to make them true pieces of fine art. As artists we look at each individual map, or collection of maps, to create a work of art that will last a century or more. After digitally repairing and cleaning the original maps we update the overall color schemes, add texture and patterns, and adjust sharpness, contrast, tone and vibrancy. In some cases, such as in our Cape Cod collection we will digitally stich maps or sections of maps together to provide a more interesting presentation.
Why hang an old original print when you can digitally colorize the history of the map and make it come to life.
