The traditional art of cartography has been revived in the Cartart private workshop founded by Dr. Zsolt Török in Budapest, Hungary. Since 1992 cartographic landmarks, historically important, highly decorative and extremely rare maps have been published by the original technology of production.

The maps are the sheets of the Atlas Collectus series we designed and publish for lovers of early maps. In 1996 we published the largest printed globe of the world: the new edition of the 42" terrestrial globe of Vincenzo Coronelli. We publish LIMITED EDITIONS and produce CUSTOM COPIES.

For more information please, contact the PUBLISHER by e-mail!

Our maps are hand printed from original
woodcuts or copper plate engravings on fine hand made, archival quality paper, and are colored by hand. They are not reproductions, copies or facsimili,  but rare and original new editions. They are FacTsimile maps.

Our works protect a part of the art of European map and globe making, a part of the World's Cultural Heritage.

With your support and contribution this cultural conservation project can continue and you can have the map you always dreamed of, specially designed for you. We can also survey, design, engrave and print your map of your world.

Please, contact us if you want an unique gift for yourself, your family, friends or your company!

For availability and order please, contact the PUBLISHER by e-mail!

We have presented special copies of our maps to:
  • Mr. George Bush President of the United States of America
  • H.M.Juan Carlos, King of Spain
  • Dr. Helmut Kohl,Chancellor of Germany
Our maps are preserved or displayed in major libraries and institutions, public and private collections
in Europe, the United States and worldwide!
