As if to prove that interest in cartography is perpetual, this wonderful collection of images was issued in the mid-20th century by C.S. Hammond & Co. for home crafting. Accompanying instructions provide a number of different uses, from application on plates to toy chests, custom book ends, lamp shades, and much more.

The maps range from the 17th century to (then) present day and include editions from Johann Baptiste Homann and Covens & Mortier. Accents such as compass roses and an inset map of London are also included.
