Piri Reis was a 16th century Ottoman Admiral famous for his maps and charts collected in his Kitab-Ä± Bahriye (Book of Navigation), a book which contains detailed information on navigation as well as extremely accurate charts describing the important ports and cities of the Mediterranean Sea. In 1513 he produced his first world map, based on some 20 older maps and charts which he had collected, including charts personally designed by Christopher Columbus which his uncle Kemal Reis obtained in 1501 after capturing seven Spanish ships off the coast of Valencia in Spain with several of Columbusâ€™ crewmen on board.

Thank you so much, Deborah, that means a lot to me! I'm a little wary about using these as wallpaper. The maps were originally drawn in the late 1400's and are in the form of a book. Some of them have smeared lines, dark spots, and shadowing from other pages. I thought these kind of marks would make your walls look dirty. I did make the Piri Reis Combo for sale as wallpaper because of the smaller scale of the maps.

Your voyaging collection is wonderful, Lori. Will you be offering this design as wallpaper also?
