A fine 1730 world map was drawn by Stoopendaal for publication in the Keur Bible. This map offered by Customaps, depicts the world on a hemisphere projection surrounded by stunning allegorical cartouche work. The cartouche work corresponds to that seen on the second world Bible map produced by Nicolaas Visscher, Orbis Terrarum Tabula Recens Emendata, though the map has changed to accommodate evolving geographical suppositions. Stoopendaal revisions of Visscher’s work include geographical updates as well as the incorporation of Copernican and Ptolemaic solar systems in the place of Visscher’s polar projections. In this map, Stoopendaal has incorporated the convention of a flat topped insular California. Also, his rendering of the Great Lakes as a single body of water open to the west is of particular interest and is the most ephemeral element of this map.

Strength, tear-resistance, flexibility, and the ability to fold without the image cracking are key benefits of our posters.
- PEEL & STICK WALL MURALS:
Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.
Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
