Hi there everybody. I am new to this forum so I have no idea what I'm doing. If this is in the wrong place, I apologize.

Anyway, I just now came across this site that seems to do digital image enhancement and paper modeling, and they have a section for antique maps. What is really cool is they have completely redone the Jamieson Celestial Atlas in a way that I have never seen before on any of the traditional map museum websites, etc.

I emailed them and they wrote me back saying that it was new thing they just started doing, but that they were going to be doing the Harmonia Macrocosmia, Uranometria, Atlas Coelestis, and a few others. I think they said initial plans are 6 or so.

If you are like me and into medieval celestial maps and atlases too, you will think these are very cool. I downloaded the set and will be making my own book like they suggest. The images are beautiful and I will post pics here of my project once it is finished.

Okay so before I sign off, here is the url: ANTIQUE MAPS - KINETIC PAPER ART (http://kineticpaper.weebly.com/antique-maps.html)

Hopefully I'm in the right spot. Thanks
