Are custom made maps expensive?

I get a lot of questions what a custom made map or infographic will cost. To be honest, it differs a lot. It depends on the size and the complexity of the map or infographic and on how much content will be added to it. Because each map is custom made, it is difficult to indicate beforehand what a map will cost, though. Of course it is possible to tailor the map to your budget.

Does it take long to make a map or infographic?

Again that depends on the complexity of the map or infographic and how fast you respond on the drafts I send you. See for further information my working method.

Who owns the map or infographic?

You own all rights to the map or infographic. You are free to re-publish, change or make your own custom versions of the map or infographic. Cartographic Studio will be glad to give you an estimate for updating derivative versions of the map or infographic. The only request Cartographic Studio may have, is permission to use a copy of your map or infographic on its website.

Who uses my maps?

It is a great pleasure to work for and with lots of historians. It is amazing how diverse their subjects can be! I illustrate books, journals and catalogues for musea. So, here is a small selection of what I did:


Most commissions come from historians. They order monochrome maps for their publications.

Journals I

work on a regular basis for the 'International Review of Social History'
