As a child did you burn the edges of tea-soaked paper to make your own ‘genuine’ treasure maps?

Do you love the romance and adventure of tales of corsairs on the high seas?

Are your eyes drawn to the hand-drawn lines and detailed imagery of old nautical maps?

If so, my vintage map maker toolkit is the right product for you! Whether it’s for a pirate-themed project, an eye-catching event flyer, intricately patterned soft furnishings or an evocative brand design, you can easily bring them to life with this one-stop Adobe Illustrator map-making toolkit. The Artifex Forge has spent many happy hours poring over antique maps and vintage nautical illustrations on your behalf to bring this varied and authentic material together. My vintage map creator is just one of our many Adobe Illustrator toolkits and design elements.
