Why buy Maps of the Moon?
In the age of discovery maps of the explored and the yet to be explored where vital intelligence for planning expeditions into the unknown. There is a vibrant trade in antique maps, the older the dearer. Early astronomers made maps of the Moon based on their observations, there is also a niche market for antique Moon maps. Fast forward to the 21st century and most information is now digital, including maps. Artificial Intelligence is instructed to generate content nearly exponentially, yet history is rarely recorded, or safe, in a purely digital form. What is a better way to preserve history than to have on your wall at home, office or classroom, a unique map showing the exploration of the Moon?

A Message from the CEO of Lunar Resources Registry
“Before I co-founded Lunar Resources Registry (LRR), I was an avid collector of antique maps. I am a reader of history, particularly of the explorers who were first to map newly discovered regions.
In 2019 when we were developing a registry of resources on the Moon that may one day become the first mines on the Moon, we had to first map human activity on the Moon. Our intention was to add human activity to the Moon into our database in order to mark areas of non-interference, as per the Outer Space Treaty. As we were developing new unique maps of the Moon I realised we could create a modern historical map, up to date with the latest missions, showing where and when they landed. This map is a historical record of Lunar exploration.
It was certainly a surprise to my team and I that we were making current maps of the Moon, and knowing there are many collectors of Moon maps, and many of the impressive antique Moon maps have withstood the test of time, I decided that we had to make a map too, that was visually impressive, of high quality, and educational. We are here to inspire young and old to explore the space.
Our first editions are limited, and later versions will be more mass-market. We are open to suggestions and collaboration on creating unique maps of the Moon for your purposes, be it for a private collection, a school or university, or simply to impress friends and family.” Simon Drake, 30th September 2023.
