Kitty Print has been selling antique prints and maps online since 1997, and offline for over 45 years. All my prints and maps are genuine originals and, unless specifically marked, guaranteed over 100 years old. I am a Graduate of the London College of Printing in Craft Bookbinding, and have studied Paper Conservation. I have exhibited at various Antique shows around England and am a member of the International Map Collector's Society (IMCOS).

Antique prints and illustrations make a beautiful addition to any room, whether it's your office or family home. Look for prints about a subject with some sort of relevance or connection, and you will get endless pleasure from them. They make fabulous, thoughtful gifts and, furthermore, antique prints tend to gain in value, as long as you don't damage them.

If you are looking for a specific print or theme and cannot find it here please do contact me - as I still have much more in stock which is not on Kittyprint.com
