Wonderful Free Printable Vintage Maps To Download

Free Printable Vintage Maps For All Your Craft Needs

As so many of the crafts on Pillarboxblue involve maps, I have decided to share with you my collection of free printable vintage maps. So you can use them for your own crafts and DIYs.
It’s amazing how a decoupaged vintage map can transform the mundane into something awesome, such as with my map table IKEA hack. Vintage maps can also be used for printing onto wood and other surfaces too.
The maps I have scanned in from my collection are from the 1890’s, as these are copyright free. They include several country maps, a couple of world maps and city map.
I will be adding more maps at a later date so watch this space. Just click on the titles or maps you want and you will be given a free PDF of the Map to print or save. I have scanned the maps in at a relatively high resolution so you should be able to get a good downloadable print.
Not sure what to do with a free printable vintage map, then check out my maps craft page for lots of cool ideas and inspiration.
Whether you want to transform a piece of furniture with maps or simply make some fun paper decorations, you should find something you like. The gorgeous map roses I made are one of my most popular posts and have been featured in several magazines.

  2. I love the maps and I am so excited that they are FREE and not copyrighted. My favorite in your collage is the interior of the lamp shade. My son decorates his home in steampunk and these are perfect for him. HIs birthday is next week, so maybe I can actually make him something! Thanks for sharing

    • Thank you, Debbie. The maps I used in the lamp shade were gift wrap by Cavallini so should be easy to buy.

  8. Oh Claire, thank you so much, these are awesome! I love the one of the US in another language, so unique. All of them are awesome and I’ll have to find a way to incorporate some of them into my home. I love the one of England because my great great greats… came from England 🙂

  10. This is such a great idea! When I was little, my Grandad had map of the world on the wall in his office. He used to put drawing pins in to mark all the places he’d travelled to. He passed away 20 years ago and I don’t know what happened to the map but I’d love to look at it now because the world will undoubtedly look very different to when he first bought it in the 50s X #HomeEtc

    • I love old maps. I love looking at countries that don’t exist anymore or that have changed their names. They are fascinating to look at and often they look great with their muted colours and vintage typography.
