In 1507 Martin Waldeemuller, a German cartographer, carved an intricately detailed, and ornamental rendering of the world as it was then known. In 2011 Rob Bowen, a graphic designer, set out to create a dual set of freebies using Waldseemuller’s world map, a set of vectors and a set of Photoshop brushes. After many failed attempts to be able to combine these large vectors into a single manageable file, Rob gave up on the complete vector set, and instead turned the large pieces over to his partner in crime (and life) so the Photoshop brushes could be made from the enormous vectors.
Just like the map was divided into twelve pieces, so is the brush pack, creating one brush from each of the richly detailed illustrated map sections. These 12 all new Photoshop brushes are now ready for you to download and start using today!
