  Please note that Brisbane Antique Emporium in Clayfield has closed. Antique Print Club has moved from Brisbane to the Antique Print Clubhouse at Neranwood above Springbrook Road in the Gold Coast Hinterland 1 hour south of Brisbane.

   Over 100 items from this website are included in antique map and antique print sections of the Handbook & Price Guide for Antiques, Collectables & Retro. 2017-2018.
Collecting on a Shoestring  includes antique items of all descriptions, but grouped by value. Both are fascinating and well-illustrated - and available from this website.
The quarterly Australian Antiques & Collectables magazine will be at newsagents early in March: 
I mentioned antique prints of Owls, with illustrations. The day after submission three small 18th century copperplate Owl engravings were bought by someone in New York!

    As populations increased so did demand for information. More durable, less costly and quicker printing techniques were inventedDifferent methods of antique print-making were frequently combined in the one print - particularly for portraits. A variety of printing styles of previous centuries are illustrated here: a 16th century antique woodblock print from Gerarde's Herball c1597 describes Fungi and Truffles as "unprofitable and nothing worth" (Antique Prints> Botany>Fruits,Nuts,Fungi); a 17th century engraving of fortifications for a European town from Mallet's Art of War c1684 (Antique Prints>Military>Army/Navy); an 18thC copperplate-engraved map of Naples & Sicily c1794 by Robert Wilkinson (Antique Maps> Europe>Italy); a 19thC steel engraving of Bartlett's Brighton in England, c1837 (Antique Prints> Historic Views>UK/Ireland); a 19thC hand-coloured lithograph of Calornis Crassa, Gould's Slaty-Grey Glossy Starling c1880 from Birds of New Guinea and the Adjacent Papuan Islands, including many new species recently discovered in Australia (Antique Prints>Birds: John Gould lithographs); and a 19thC wood engraving of Burwood copper-smelting works near Newcastle in Australia from The Illustrated London News in 1854 (Antique Prints> Historic Views>Australian Views>New South Wales) show how diverse print-making techniques were. A 20thC French fashion pochoir, The Blue Room of Arthenice from La Gazette du Bon Ton (Antique Prints>Fashion) shows yet another method - a separate stencil cut for each successive application of watercolour.

   Our most frequent enquiry is an item's value. As well as its importance to the owner, the value of artwork depends on quality, condition, rarity and demand. An item sold at auction for example, can be 'passed in' (unsold because no one present is interested in bidding) - or it can fetch a record price when more than one person is particularly keen to buy. 

    Paper is easily damaged. Antique maps and prints are no exception. If handled with care they can survive another hundred yearsFrame your artwork with protective conservation materials, and be aware that U/V protective glass is now available. Heritage Editions and other decorator art reproductions will remain as good as when bought, if framed correctly.
