The founders of World of Maps met during their travels across Europe and Asia in the 1970's and their love of travel and maps continues to inspire them today.
Travel books and maps have always played a role in their lives; for planning & display or to take as reference materials on their journeys. Travel literature and books related to places, history, and exploration are a part of who they are as individuals and as a business.
As travelers from different countries themselves, they know how important a map or a flag is as a symbol of home for those traveling and living in a different cultures.
They started the business in 1994 as an oasis for travelers, a place to share stories, to prepare, to plan, to educate and to be inspired.
They live by the motto "Know where you are, know where you are going & remember where you have been."
