About this event

Paula van Gestel will present aspects of her research for a cartobibliography on Dutch wall maps which she has been compiling with Günter Schilder since 2010. In addition to setting out their defining characteristics, manner of construction, sources, geographic and decorative content and the historical context, she will also discuss several prominent publishers of wall maps, the commercial environment, and issues of privileges and commissions.

Paula van Gestel has been affiliated with the historical cartographic research programme Explokart (https://explokart.eu/) at the University of Amsterdam since 1999. She is also a member of the staff and board member of the Explokart Foundation and the Cartographiae Historicae Cathedra (CHC Foundation) for whom she additionally fund raises, edits, and supervises various projects. In 2007 she published the Liber Amicorum for Günter Schilder, Mappæ antiquæ and in 2011 Part 13 of the Explokart series Maps in books of Russia and Poland.
