Interesting articles on antique prints and maps are in the Australian quarterly magazine Antiques & Collectables magazine - or if you can't wait for the next publication to arrive at the newsagent, www.antiqueprintclub.com website Library and Blogs. Antique maps & prints are a wonderful record of our past, with contemporary views of  worldwide history, geography, architecture, customs and fashions. As populations increased so did the thirst for knowledge. Cheaper, quicker, more durable printing methods were inventedDifferent styles of antique print-making were often combined in a print to enable finer detail; ie for portraits.

   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.
