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 here by the original technology of production. These maps are the sheets of the 'Atlas Collectus' series that 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.

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, neither 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 - at the same time you can have the map you always dreamed of, a piece of the traditional art of cartography, designed and made for you. We can make other custom products: survey, design, engrave and print a map of your world.  Please, contact us if you want an unique gift for yourself, your family, friends or your company!

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

We have presented special copies of our maps to:
Our maps are preserved and/or displayed in major libraries and institutions, public and private collections
in Europe, the United States and worldwide (e.g. Library of Congress, British Library, Harvard Library, Newberry Library, George Bush Presidential Library)

Security notice
We produce original maps by traditonal technology. For the all-original quality of our products their right identification is very important.
For security reason there are identification marks on every map produced in our workshop. Beyond these hidden 'fingerprints', there are clearly visible inscriptions: the name of he publisher and the date of publication can be found in the map area. Our maps are also protected by a special, non-removable, structural 'OT' watermark. You can read the word 'cartart' in the watermark. To avoid the misuse of  our prints we offer only colour copies. The custom printed maps, illuminated in our workshop are unique and we can always identify our works. If in doubt or if you need our assistance with identification please, contact the Publisher!
