Erstwhile publish a range of exclusively licensed reproductions of mid-century wall maps and rare vintage botanical and zoological charts. The beauty of imperfection and decay that comes with age and use is preserved within each artwork. On one of their countless trips through vintage shops and antique stores they discovered a love of old wall charts. Realizing a decline in the availability of well preserved, high quality wall charts for a reasonable price, they set out on the quest of filling this void by republishing our favorite unique pieces. They constantly rummage through libraries, archives and antique stores across the globe to track down those lost forgotten gems. Their true passion is about preserving the beauty of imperfection and decay that comes with time and use. Sometimes in the state they find them, or by restoring artwork to its' original condition, they aim to bring uniqueness into a world of mass production and smooth surfaces.
