Bird’s eye view maps – also known as panoramic maps or aerial view maps – are where art, geography, and history combine to celebrate a lost art form. Vintage City Maps offers the most extensive collection of restored and remastered maps available, and is dedicated to bringing these works of art back to life for all to enjoy.
These maps have tremendous artistic, educational, and historical value and make great collector’s items and gifts. For detailed background on the maps and the artists, click History.
The collection: Our catalog of maps includes over 1,300 American cities and towns as well as Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia, and Australia. More are in production and we’re constantly adding to the collection. Let us know if you don’t see what you’re looking for.
Sizes: The maps are very clear, high-resolution, and printed on high-quality archival paper in two different sizes. Regular sizes are about 24 inches high x 36 inches wide, and the large sizes are around 36 x 54 inches, depending on the original map format. Most of our regular-sized maps will fit standard wall frames available from your local retailer.
Shipping: All maps are shipped unframed in a protective plastic sleeve, inside of a sturdy cardboard mailing tube. Depending on your location, you can expect delivery within 4 business days for the regular size maps, and 7 business days for the large size maps. Shipping and handling within the U.S. is a flat $12.95 per order, regardless of the number of maps. For Canada we can only ship our regular-sized maps (no larger than 24″ high) for the same $12.95 flat rate per order. We can ship world-wide (our regular-sized maps only), for an additional shipping charge. Contact us for shipping information to a specific location outside of the U.S. and Canada. We’ll be glad to include a gift card – just give us the instructions.
