This is Maison Maps

Maison Maps Maison Maps was founded by Anneke Ras.
Since I was a young girl, I've been captivated by world atlases, country maps, and city charts. I could spend hours poring over them, letting my imagination roam free. Whenever I traveled, I'd grab a map to track my journey.

This passion led me to start creating maps under the name Maps By Annie, and they quickly gained popularity in the United States. However, I had grander ambitions - to share these maps with the European market and beyond, and soon enough, Europe and Asia found their way to my maps.

I personally create each map, drawing inspiration from various sources such as the internet, atlases, and travel books. It all starts with thorough online research, often enriched by insights from individuals familiar with the featured country. For example, my boyfriend played a crucial role in crafting the Vietnam map, given that it's his birthplace. Likewise, a dear friend from South Africa contributed valuable knowledge for the South Africa map. Armed with this wealth of information, I digitally design the maps, adding intricate details. Maison Maps aspires to evoke the joy of past vacations and help you reconnect with your roots. We offer a diverse range of products beyond posters, each designed to bring the world a little closer to you.

I ordered the poster from Norway for my son. Last week I received it. A beautiful drawing printed on beautiful black paper (good quality, too)! We are very satisfied. I am waiting for Austria (that will be a gift) and do not rule out buying the world map. It will make you greedy! 😍

The map of Poland is beautifully drawn. I ordered it for my sons room. It hangs on the wall and makes the room very colourful. We love it! It arrived in a box which kept the poster nice. You have so many maps for kids that I will come back. They are also nice as a present. Dzięki!

Anneke created the most wonderful map of Israel for our summer camp. She is responsive, friendly, and of course super talented! Thanks so much, Anneke! Excited to see it come to life this summer.
