Abraham Ortelius: Typus Orbis Terrarum. This is the third state of the map, which first appeared in 1589 and adds the new embellishments, including the strapwork around the image and the medallions with quotes from Cicero and Seneca. The map is based upon Mercator's map of 1569, Gastaldi's map of 1561 and Diego Gutierrez' portolan map of the coastlines of the Atlantic.
During his time as a visiting professor in New York, Josef Frank designed two map patterns, of which one received the name Dixieland, a nickname for the American south. The pattern depicts the Atlantic Ocean and its surrounding continents. Frank portrays Africa as a pair of huge sunflowers and the vast region of the Amazons as watermelons. The oceans swell up onto white sandy beaches. Dixieland was printed for the first time in connection with Svensk Tenn’s anniversary exhibition in 1974.
