Conveying much more than geography, maps can be both works of art and cultural commentaries, expressing various worldviews and conveying messages of status and power. For example, the twelve maps in this calendar—created by sixteenth- and seventeenth-century European cartographers—reflect the influence sought by monarchs in the newly discovered lands, waterways, and trade routes they explored during the European Age of Discovery.
All of Pomegranate’s calendars are printed with soy-based inks on FSC® certified paper, which means the paper has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™ and manufactured by an FSC certified printer. FSC certification promotes responsible forest management by ensuring that forestry practices are environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically viable.
