At Winter Museo, we have a profound affinity for maps that goes beyond mere geographical fascination. Our founder, Shea Winter Roggio, has always been an avid globetrotter, with every new location visited nurturing his enduring passion for maps. Over time, our collections of map posters grew, adding ones such as the Italy Antique Maps collection and the Mexico Cartel Style Map collection. Now we have a new set to show you, the US Islands Map Posters Collection. But keep in mind that our map posters aren’t just decorative pieces; they’re silent storytellers, each narrating a unique tale of places near and far.
This latest collection is a testament to this ethos. Featuring 15 of the most prominent and unique islands within the USA, this collection is a visual journey to the serene and picturesque landscapes of islands like Block Island, Fire Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Maui, Nantucket, and Ocracoke, among others.
This collection is actually made up of two different collections depicting the same islands but in different styles. One is a modern style with vivid blue and white colors, and it is called the US Islands Colored Maps collection. The posters from the other series are designed in a classic style that resembles ancient maps that you might find in a museum. Thus, this second series is called US Islands Vintage Maps.
