Antique Print Club is for all who appreciate the craftsmanship involved in creating images for circulation before the advent of scanners and cameras. Original antique prints and maps are rare and fragile, with fine detail and period paper that is hundreds of years old. We have around 20,000 - many on our website. They cover almost every subject and region - up to 400 years old. For more information on our maps & prints, make sure you visit our Blogspot and Library. Let us help you find something special. If you prefer, email or phone us for personal Gift Certificates.
Derek and Kathryn Nicholls have been dealing in antique maps and prints for over thirty years. Antique Print Club has evolved from Antiquarian Print Gallery (in The Mansions, George Street, Brisbane), Regency Fine Art Gallery (in Los Angeles), and Antique Print & Map Company (previously in Milton, Brisbane). Antique Print Club now has thousands of original antique maps and prints at Brisbane Antique Emporium at 794 Sandgate Road, Clayfield (not far from East-West Arterial Road to/from Brisbane airport, with entry from Junction Road). By prior arrangement, visits can be made to the Antique Print Club-house in Neranwood (off Springbrook Road behind the Gold Coast).
A few years ago we commissioned the printing of Heritage Editions from a few popular antique maps and prints, for those who would like larger images of rare antique prints, a matching group, or multiple orders of single images for large decorating contracts. Traditional antique-style Heritage Editions reproductions provide inexpensive artwork - including Limited Editions from rare antique maps that recorded milestones in the discovery of Australia. When framed, behind glass, Heritage Editions can be mistaken for original antique prints and maps. (To prevent colour deterioration from ultraviolet light, we recommend framing with conservation/museum glass.)
We also have Books on our website and at our Antique Print Club-house.. a small selection of antiquarian and fine bindings, and a larger selection of mainly non-fiction and reference, which of course include the fascinating subject of antique engravings and lithographs!
We hope you find something special from Antique Print Club. If choosing for others, Gift Certificates for any value can be arranged by email or phone call (details at base of Home Page). So enjoy your visit to our site, and let us know if we can be of any assistance.
