ABOUT RARE MAPS AND PRINTS
WHAT I DO!
This is the home of my 'boutique collection' of rare maps and decorative prints. It includes British Topography, Travel, Humour, Satire, Botanical, Natural History, Sporting, Heraldry, Marine, Science and Architecture. All the maps and prints you see in THE COLLECTION are original works, many with fine hand colour from the 16th to 20th centuries. This is not just a place to buy! I like to provide resources to help new collectors and share my online strategies and tools that are helping me build my own online business.
WHO is Kevin J. Ryan?
how does he know about this stuff?
I come from a creative background in music and publishing. I've been a studious and passionate collector of rare maps and prints for years. As a kid I loved history and art however ended up spending a significant part of my life in music.
I've spent thousands of hours with my head inside books on the subject of antique maps and prints and guess what - I still do, Having amassed a modest collection I decided in 2016 that I wanted to build a new online business. I wanted this to be something that would better suit my work life balance and also give me the chance to share my passion for antique maps and prints with others.
To get this kick started I took the plunge and produced a series of short web-tv shows focused on helping a new generation of collectors to discover the truly fascinating world of antique maps and prints. I now have people from all around the world buying my maps and prints and I would love to help you get started to!
