“Beautiful map – thank you!”



“Even while I was late ordering, Lisa made sure my beautiful map was on time for my husband’s Birthday”


Bought one for the office then my wife bought this one for the home.

I highly recommend working w/ Ms. Middleton. The map I received is beautiful and the perfect complement of historic interest w/ earth tone colors. It was carefully packed in a thick tube so it wouldn’t get damaged. I couldn’t be happier as it’s going to be the perfect Christmas gift.

Thanks! Great Map, fast service and a bonus gift of 2 cards. I couldn’t be happier!

Arrived on time and looks beautiful in my office. We are getting one for the house.

The map is historic & touched with beauty!! Lisa was very helpful in securing it’s safe arrival & I would gladly order from her again!

What the Press are Saying

“The most interesting appeal is the color and beauty of the maps. This is where Lisa Middleton…loves to use her special talent in color, blending and her sensitivity to the joys that maps hold for us as collectors.” Sandy Erdman, Rochester Post Bulletin July 4, 2015.

“She’s turned [that] fascination into an art — finding, restoring and replicating old maps, then creating art on top of the prints.” Abby Eisenburg, Winona Daily News June 13, 2013.

“Middleton is doing more than making art, she’s helping to preserve history.” Chris Peterson, Hungry Horse News May 13, 2015.

“In her hands, a torn black-and-white 1883
plat of Montana Territory blossoms into a
vividly colored snapshot of what the land
once was. It remains a map by definition, but
by execution it is now an ornate showpiece fit
for the living room wall, touched by an artist’s
hand with its essential purpose still intact.”
Myers Reese, Montana Quarterly Fall, 2014.

“Many different things can make a map
interesting. Sometimes many places on the
map have disappeared…Sometimes a map
reality and fantasy…’I like to work on maps
with history, maps of places people love, maps
that have stories,’Middleton said.”
Big River Magazine, Summer 2013.
