'Pick of the Pack'
Over 5,000 hand printed and coloured etchings and engravings from original, mostly antique, intaglio printing plates.
Maps and plans available as high quality photo or giclee prints
Antique prints and maps can make a fascinating subject for collecting, whether they depict your local area, somewhere you have visited or maybe places of interest in genealogy and family history. Old and antique maps and prints also make an ideal and different idea as an inexpensive unusual gift for Christmas, weddings, birthdays or retirement.
Now with over 10,400 reasonably priced old maps and prints listed, all illustrated and available to buy using a shopping cart with built in generous discounts.
I also sell a range of traditional art prints through my other website at intaglio-fine-art.com which, although not antique, are very fine decorative prints of a high quality, these are also ideal as lasting gifts for special occasions, or as heritage quality pictures for home or office decoration.
All my antique maps and prints are supplied loose, allowing many orders to be sent post-free, and with a discount for orders of multiple items.
Also, all the old prints and maps I sell are genuine antiques, produced at or near the date stated by one of the traditional printing processes. These are not modern copies.

Postage, April 2013
Unfortunately my post/packing charges have had to be increased again this year, from 2nd April, following Royal Mail's second inflation busting price increase in two years, of up to 130% for some packets! As before this increase was accompanied by the promise of a better service.
Hand colouring service
I do not directly provide a hand colouring service but can recommend Louise Brown at http://antiqueprintcolourist.co.uk/
Recently added are more decorative Thomas Allom prints of China and Chinese 'scenery, manners and customs'. Over 53 Chinese views from this series are now available.
These high-resolution downloads are ideal to print out or to use in other ways such as on cards or stationery. You can see them here.
