These map paper succulents adorned a beautiful setting for a bride to be. A travel theme proved to be the perfect idea for an adventurer. Many thanks to @mydesignerjacqueline. From my end, I had the opportunity to not only work with a different material, but also explore the realms of geography and cartography.

The Atlas Maior marked the end of the Dutch monopoly in comercial cartography. After a large fire broke out in 1672, many copper plates were destroyed along with one of Joan Blaeu’s printing presses. He died the following year, leaving behind around 1,000 copper plates. One of JB’s contemporaries and friend, Laurens van der Hem (1621-1678), continued to collect maps. He had his 11 volume copy of the Atlas Maior unbounded and reassembled as an atlas of 46 volumes with approximately 3,000 maps and drawings. “This atlas was purchased by Prince Eugene of Savoy in 1730 and after his death came into the possession of the Austrian Emperor. Today the Atlas Blaeu-Van der Hem is one of the showpieces of the Austrian National Library in Vienna and in 2004 was included in the Memory of the World Program by UNESCO.” #middayadventure #atlasmaior #backdrop #cartography #cartouche #compassrose #cosmography #craftsmanship #dailydoseofpaper #flowerbackdrop #flowercenter #geography #handmade #handcut #maps #oldmaps #paperartist #paperartmagazine #paperflowers #papercraft #papersculpture #papersucculents #printingpress #shoplocal #smallshop #thankswikipedia #typesetter #unesco #womenentrepreneurs #womeninbusiness

Scotland follows a division line made predominantly by nature. Called the “Highland Line”, this fault zone travels from the southwest coast towards the northeast coast; separating two different geological terrains, each with a distinctive magnetic feature. “They further divide it into the parts inhabited by Highlanders and Lowlanders. The Lowlanders use the language and costumes of the English; the Highlanders are more primitive, coming closer to the crude manner of the Irish”. Destruction of clan system, bans on bearing of arms and wearing tartan, there were clearances and mass migration; transformed a once large population, to one of Europe’s most sparsely populated areas.

Consumed primarily as a drink for thousands of years; this plant was domesticated by humans and enjoyed for its flavor, and for its stimulating and medicinal properties. “Among the many trees of New Spain, there is one which carries this fruit of great renown in North America, commonly called cacao. It is so prized, not only by the savages but also by the Spaniards, that it is rightly considered one of the richest goods.” The royal court of Moctezuma II, prepared this frothy drink with an intense chocolate flavor and aroma, since it was made with scraped chocolate. Over time it changed to powder form. It wasn’t until the mid 19th century that chocolate was consumed in its solid form, it had a rough beginning but its popularity surpassed drinking it by the 1920’s.

The main population of Venezuela were indigenous people, they thrived on its landscape and the richness of its soil. Then, the Spanish came and with them a vast African population. Other Europeans settled and made this country their own. It’s no wonder that this country is rich in culture and unique in its diversity. Even though each settler brought their own cooking recipes with them, there’s one Pre-Columbian staple: the arepa. The arepa is part of Venezuela for “the soil of this country is extremely fertile, for the sugar canes grow there to a marvelous height and size: there is an abundance of honey and resin, and the land produces a fair quantity of wheat; the inhabitants, however, prefer corn, with which they make a paste to which they add in cane sugar, and then make delicious big round loaves of bread, which last a long time, as though they were biscuits”. #middayadventure #atlasmaior #backdrop #cartography #cartouche #compassrose #cosmography #craftsmanship #dailydoseofpaper #flowerbackdrop #flowercenter #geography #handmade #handcut #maps #oldmaps #paperart #paperartist #paperartmagazine #paperflowers #papercraft #papersculpture #papersucculents #printingpress #shoplocal #smallshop #typesetter #venezuela #womenentrepreneurs #womeninbusiness

There’s different stories as to how the continents got their names. Europe, for example, was either named after Europa; a beautiful girl whom Zeus fell head over heels for or after its geographical location, meaning; to the east, “Erebu”, where the sun-sets. Likewise Asia, “asu” which means sunrise in Akkadian. America has a more definitive source. It was named after “Florentine Amerigo Vespucci, who, under the auspices of Manuel, king of Portugal, left Cadiz in 1497 and became the fist European to enter the new world - as far as anyone knows the Genovese Christopher Columbus had previously (in 1491) been to the islands of America, that is, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica”. #middayadventure #atlas #atlasmaior #backdrop #cartography #cartouche #compassrose #cosmography #craftsmanship #dailydoseofpaper #flowerbackdrop #flowercenter #geography #handmade #handcut #maps #oldmaps #paperart #paperartist #paperartmagazine #paperflowers #papercraft #papersculpture #papersucculents #printingpress #shoplocal #smallshop #typesetter #womenentrepreneurs #womeninbusiness
