Presenting the second mini poster in our ‘Ode to Maps’ campaign. Another map lover Tony Hoffmann picks up on the evocative phrase ‘here be dragons’ – used in medieval times to mark unexplored territories and where mapmakers drew sea serpents, dragons, and other mythological beasts.
We rather like the idea of these curious creatures caught in time, forever immortalised on beautiful old maps – figments of people’s imaginations – yet at the time, no doubt powerful deterrents and makers of exciting adventures.
Thanks for the quote Tony! Keep them coming everyone else – yours could be transformed next.
