Antique World Puzzle
This popular baroque-style map was originally designed as a frontispiece to Henricus Hondius’s 1630 revision of the long-lived Mercator/Hondius atlas, work then being challenged by rival map publishers.
The decorations include depictions of the four elements—earth, air, fire, and water—and portraits of Julius Caesar and cartographers Claudius Ptolemy, Gerard Mercator, and Jodocus Hondius Sr. Step back in time as you gain an appreciation for the art of cartography while fitting together the 1,000 pieces of this highly detailed, fascinating puzzle.
These puzzles are created from high quality 250 GSM matte art paper for superior colour, crisp details, and no glare. The thick board is ribbon-cut for a snug fit and minimal dust.
